  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Kooyong means 'where the wild fowl gather' and was so named as the property neighbours Devilbend Reserve, a home for many local waterbirds. The Kooyong vineyard itself was first established in 1995, with some 30 hectares planted to a mixture of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. Within the greater vineyard there are five distinct vineyards of which three are planted to Pinot Noir, two predominantly to Chardonnay, and a small section of Pinot Gris and Viognier. The winemaking at Kooyong Estate is taken care of by the extremely talented - and highly regarded - Sandro Mosele, a former geneticist and scientist who has been the Chief Winemaker since 1996. Sandro also makes the wines for the Gjergia families other property, Port Phillip Estate, with both sharing one of the most modern - and spectacular - cellar doors on the Peninsula. The Kooyong operation is unashamedly focused on single vineyard wines, utilising the different slopes, soils and microclimates to produce individual wines of distinction. The range includes Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Viognier, with the wines offered on three different tiers - from the entry level Clonale and Massale wines right through to the 'single vineyard' Ferrous, Haven, Meres, Faultline and Farrago wines.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    Builds slowly. The bouquet remains defiant in refusing to spark, the palate initially shy, then progressively gaining territory as the mid- and back-palate bring a carefully composed fruit salad onto the table.

    CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT


    Mornington Peninsula chardonnay. You can bank on it. Straight down the line. Stonefruit, ginger, a clip of sweet/spicy oak, flecks of funk and flint. It delivers what you came for and then offers a fraction more. Texture, flavour and just enough interest.

    JEREMY OLIVER


    Medium-bodied, with intense grapefruit and white peach flavour knit with creamy matchstick, vanilla oak. It's long and elegant, with smooth, juicy core of fruit wrapped in a gentle acidity.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Light, bright yellow colour, with a smoky barrel and lightly reductive bouquet, attractively complex and light-bodied, with a trace of grip and medium intensity. Hints of nougat, nectarine and grapefruit. Lemon-citrus to finish. An attractive ready-drinking wine with an extra degree of character.
