Kooyong

Mornington Peninsula

Kooyong is situated in the Mornington Peninsula, 80km south of Melbourne, whose cool, maritime climate produces some very exciting wines.  Owners, the Gjergja family and winemaker Glen Hayley have crafted a reputation for the very best representations of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.  Their Pinot Gris is also a superb and unique wine - as its name suggests, it is fashioned along the lines of the vanishingly rare 'Pinot Beurrot' white Burgundy. The vineyard is split into five individual parcels with a variety of clones planted on very different soils, and everything is done to express the natural characteristics of each site in its resultant wine.

The best section of each vineyard is reserved for the Single Vineyard wines. The remaining parcels are used to produce Massale Pinot Noir and Clonale Chardonnay.

"This set of Victorian wines would blow a range of Burgundies out of the water. They’d rank up there with some premier cru Côte de Beaunes."  Anthony Rose, Decanter Buying Guide

5 red stars - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion - "An outstanding winery, regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity."
