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.
Full golden straw. Quite intense and volumous - spicy old florals, stone fruit and kaffir lime. And this carries over on to the palate. Stone fruit, lemon butter, textural, rich and warming. There's some light phenolic crunch, plus a racy citrus acidity to close. Definitely better with a few extra degree's of temperature taken off.
