Kooyong is one of the Mornington Peninsula's most iconic wineries. As with most wineries in the region, their focus is on premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their 'entry level' wines, the Clonale Chardonnay and Massale Pinot Noir offer very good value for money and a great snapshot of regional style. The real core of the range is their outstanding Single Vineyard expressions of their pet varieties. These are benchmark wines crafted with extreme care and attention to detail. Kooyong are a regional flagbearer and have done much to lift the profile of the region as one of Australia's premier grape growing regions.
The refined and spicy nose gives precise aromatics of crisp apple, bosc pear and lemon peel. A cool and late harvest has delivered a Pinot Gris that is more linear and tighter in its youth. Showing orchard fruits, fresh ginger and rose water flavours, the palate is softly textured and finishes with a long, pithy lemony acidity.
