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.
Bright and aromatic, the nose delivers raspberry, strawberry and red cherry with savoury spice notes. The palate displays morello cherry and more raspberry flavours. The tannins are firm yet fine and taper into the polished finish. Sappy, moreish and complex, this wine can be enjoyed now but will gain interest over the medium term.
