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.
Beurrot is a very old Burgundian name for pinot gris, a variety that can be grown there. Here the grapes were whole-bunch pressed to old oak, wild-fermented and bottled without fining. The cool climate and vinification have produced a wine of considerable flavour and character.
