Kooyong Clonale Chardonnay

Kooyong Clonale Chardonnay

Kooyong Clonale Chardonnay from Mornington Peninsula

Kooyong Clonale Chardonnay is aromatically pure and airy, the nose delivers notes of lime, green apple and white peach along with some subtle smoky reduction. The palate offers flavours of grapefruit and nectarine combined with a lovely texture that pushes towards a pithy finish.

Kooyong has established a strong reputation as one of the Mornington Peninsula’s top producers. Vines were first planted here in 1996, and the first vintage was 1999. 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.

Kooyong

“Kooyong means `where the wild fowl gather` and was so named as the property neighbours Devilbend Reserve, a home for many local waterbirds.
The winemaking at Kooyong Estate is taken care of by the extremely talented – and highly regarded – Sandro Mosele, a former Geneticist and Scientist whom has been the Chief Winemaker since 1996. Sandro also makes the wines for the Gjergia family`s other property, Port Phillip Estate, with both sharing one of the most modern – and spectacular – cellar doors on the Peninsula.”

Victoria

This is a modern wine region. There was a dabbling in viticulture in the late 1800s and then in the 1950s but it wasn’t until Baillieu Myer of Myer stores planted vines in the early 70s did the region begin as a commercial wine producer. Many vineyards and wineries followed, most of them small, producing boutique wines. The climate is regarded as cool and exposed to wind chill from the frequent strong winds. The main wine styles: White – Chardonnay, Pinot Gris; Red – Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot.
