Tasting Note

Vibrant, transparent cherry red. Beautifully fresh and already complex aromas of cherry, cranberry, walnut, anise and liquorice root, with perhaps a hint of zesty blood orange. There's a wonderful woodsy earthiness going on underneath. The aromas are ripe, but the multi-faceted nuances are far more suggestive of Burgundy than the character you would expect from Australia or New Zealand. Seamlessly supple in the mouth, with superbly well-knit acidity and tannins, this is really finely-crafted and elegantly-balanced. An absolute joy to drink immediately, this could also age gracefully for at least another 7-10 years...if you can keep your hands off it.

- Tom King, Fine Wine Manager

Winemaking

100% destemmed and fermented in open vats without innoculation.
Matured for 18 months in French oak (30% new) Kooyong is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Tuerong and focuses on producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wine; which are both suited to the
Peninsula's cool maritime climate. Kooyong is a 'domain' in the true sense of the word and the wines are made from 100% estate grown fruit at its own on-site winery.

Press

  • 96/100 - Kooyong’s Single Vineyard Pinots exhibit darker shades across the variety’s multitude of personalities. There is an energy, a weighlessness, together with richness. The fruit ekes it way out of the savoury maze, licked with bramble, beetroot and etched by a whole cluster spike of aniseed and cardamon. The balance of fruit intensity and structural attributes augur well for a very bright future. To: 2030.

  • 96/100 - Distinctively mineral and textured, this gentle and complete pinot is certain to build more weight and texture with age. Delicate aromas of flowers, small berries and cherries, subtle oak and five spice are underpinned by a pungent minerality that seamlessly supports its smooth and complete palate of pure red berries, cherries and a hint of citrus oil. It reminds me of some of the finer and more perfumed wines from Mount Etna.

  • Satisfying complexity and finish

    My favourite was the "Ferrous" 2012. It had a most inviting and interesting nose, satisfying complexity and finish... I nominated [it] the Grand Cru.

  • 2012 vintage

    What it lacked in length [compared with the Clos Vougeot Grand Cru] it more than made up for in balance.

  • Unique!

    The Australian Kooyong (it was unique!)...had character, some exciting noses and intriguing back notes that slowly endeared themselves. Hence my purchase - must expand my horizons. I never go for Antipodean Pinot as I’m a bit of a stick in the mud (I prefer a Chorey, Savigny or Clos Vougeot).
