Tasting Note

Tastes like Chassagne-Montrachet that costs twice as much! Bright limey-straw colour. An aromatic nose with fresh lime/ lemon and quartzy silica mineral characters, balanced with notes of toasted nuts, white peach and a soft creaminess. Palate is bright and again minerally with the same attractive balance of pert citrus zing and layers of texture.

Winemaking

The Kooyong vineyard is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Tuerong, on Miocene sedimentary soils. The wines are made from domain grown, handpicked grapes and aim to manifest terroir: the integration of geology and soils with the macroclimate of the region, the mesoclimates of the various sites within the vineyard and the weather of the annual grape growing season. Cultural operations in the vineyard and practices in the winery endeavour to articulate these unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice. Kooyong Clonale is a blend of Chardonnay from the Kooyong and Ballewindi vineyards. The parcels in this wine represent 9.5 hectares. The fruit is whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented in French oak (12% new) without yeast inoculation. The wine was aged sur lie for 10 months prior to bottling.

Press

  • 92/100 - Clonale is always a fine expression, setting one's expectations high for the upper echelon wines ahead. As reliant on its chewy waft across the inner gums as it is on its mineral and well positioned oak for poise, focus and length, this brims with flavour: honeydew melon, dried hay, cashew, nougat and curd. Round and pleasing already, but will hold for mid-term cellaring.
