Regular price $54.95 Sale

The Kooyong vineyard and winery, established in 1996, was acquired by the Gjergja family in 2004. Kooyong is located in Tuerong, towards the northern end of the Mornington Peninsula. The majority of the forty hectare site is planted to Pinot Noir, with a substantial area of Chardonnay and several small sections of Pinot Gris.

All Kooyong and Port Phillip Estate wines are entirely domain grown, vinified and bottled. The wines in the Quartier stable are produced from estate grown fruit and fruit from neighbouring vineyards.

The Kooyong vineyard is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Tuerong, on Miocene sedimentary soils. Our wines are made from domain grown, handpicked grapes and aim to manifest terroir: the integration of our geology and soils with the macroclimate of our region, the mesoclimates of the various sites within our vineyard and the weather of the annual grape growing season. Our cultural operations in the vineyard and practices in the winery endeavour to articulate these unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice. 

"The aromatic and expressive nose offers black cherry, floral and barrel-derived spice notes, together with complexing scents of citrus and lavender. There is a suppleness to the mid-palate, that offers flavours of pomegranate as well as earthier characters. Fine tannin provides structural support, which leads, with length and directness, to a pleasing forest fruit and sour cherry finish. This wine will greatly reward mid-term cellaring. " - Winery Notes
