Kooyong Ferrous Pinot Noir
Mornington
Planted exclusively to Pinot Noir, Kooyong Estate's Ferrous Vineyard lies atop sandstones which are encrusted with iron oxide, giving them a rusty appearance and inspiring the Ferrous moniker. Unique soils impart the intriguing characters of hot wet stone and rusty outback to the exquisitely compex nose. The scant 1.74 hectares of Ferrous Block yield an extremely limited release, single vineyard wine, arguably Mornington's flagship Pinot Noir.

Ferrous Vineyard is less protected from the northerly winds, and the soil extremely unforgiving, resulting in greater stress being placed upon the vines. The vines here tend to run out of available water much sooner than in most parts of Mornington. The resulting wine is more masculine in nature, the tannins have more presence and the colour is richer. All grapes are picked by hand and destemmed alongside a portion of whole bunches, into large oak foudres for three weeks of ferment without any added yeasts. A course of wild malolactic in barrel is followed by seventeen months maturation in French oak, a third of which are new, to be bottled without any fining or filtration. Alcohol 13.5%
 
Dark blood maroon colour. Aromas of crushed ironstone, pink grapefruit, fresh beetroot, wild/ sour cherry and a forest floor. Foamy strawberry and strawberry shortcake, tart black cherries, sleek texture, creamy vanillin note and oak seamlessly integrated, a density of fruit flavours, an utterly pure, savoury line, pert acidity and assertive tannin propel the palate to length.

Kooyong Haven Pinot Noir
Mornington
The wines of Kooyong aim to express their terroir, an integration of geology, soils and mesoclimates of the various sites within the vineyard and the weather of the growing season, to articulate the unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice. The most sheltered block of Pinot Noir is called Haven, its coddled vines yield grapes of enticing purple jube opulence, completely destemmed for wild indigenous yeast vinification and a year's maturation in French oak barriques, its velvet richness and lushness supported by firm underlying tannin structure.

Deep garnet hues. Plethora of black and red fruit bouquets, spicy notes of cardamon, nettle and dried orange. A palate of great depth and boldness, juicy black cherry flavours and fine structural elements supported by tight tannin grip, fleshyness and the complexity of farmyard fruit, Haven lingers long on the finish to lasting impressions of sen-sen licorice, rhubarb and stalk.

Massale is an assemblage of Pinot Noir parcels grown to Tuerong and Balnarring estate vineyards. Destemmed grapes and a component of whole bunches are indigenously vinified in open vats for up to three weeks without the introduction of any yeasts. Batches are treated to natural malolactic followed by a year's maturation in French oak barriques and larger format foudres, achieving a wine that's completely approachable in its youth.
 
A pretty purplish crimson colour. The nose speaks of bright red fruits, raspberries and cherry, then violet florals, dried meadow herbs and hints of cherry pip, oak and botanical spice. The palate is attractively brambly with a core of red fruits, fresh acidity, fine, graphite tannins and a savoury edge which balances the fruit. Massale is an elegant wine which will continue to evolve beautifully.

Mornington
Kooyong Estate is located at Tuerong and focuses on growing a small range of Burgundesque varietal clones. There are five distinct vineyards of which three are planted to Pinot Noir, the fastidiously husbanded blocks produce stately wines.

The cultural practices of Kooyong respect and nurture the inherent character of each block. All vines are hand cane pruned, if the season is showing higher yields, bunches are thinned to focus the intensity of flavour in remaining clusters. All grapes are hand picked and the vinification is nothing short of meticulous. Parcels of destemmed grapes and whole bunches are vinified through the action of spontaneous, ambient yeasts in a mix of concrete vats and fermenters for eighteen days. Upon completion, batches are pressed and racked into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for malolactic and fourteen months maturation, bottled unfiltered and unfined.
The Kooyong Vineyard and winery are located at Tuerong on the northern end of the Mornington Peninsula

Kooyong Estate was established on a gently undulating 93 hectare property neighbouring Devilbend Reserve, home to many native water birds. The Kooyong name means where the wild fowl gather. The vineyard and winery are part of the Gjergja family domain which also includes Port Phillip Estate. Compared with more southerly vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula, Kooyong experiences a warmer, drier climate, and the light, sandy clay soil is also less vigorous than the more typical rich loam of the region. The winemaker is Sandro Mosele.

Kooyong Estate

Chris and Gail Aytward established Kooyong in 1995 after being Introduced to the wine industry when purchasing a farm at Shoreham on the Mornington Peninsula. The site contained three acres of Chardonnay vines. At this time Mornington was rapidly establishing itself as a premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape-growing region, as both these varieties were suited to Mornington's cool maritime climate. The Aytwards were inspired to develop a second site, specifically selected for its potential to produce top quality fruit, and today wines released under the Kooyong label comes exclusively from this site.

In 1998 plans for a large and modern winery were devised and construction began. Chris Aytward's experience as a property developer with the Grollo brothers helped immensely in the construction of an impressive winery for Kooyong's operations. State of the art equipment was installed to give the winemaking team the best possible opportunity in processing, fermenting and storing top quality wines. Kooyong Estate now lays claim to 52 acres of Pinot Noir and 27 acres of Chardonnay vines. Kooyong strives for complexity in its wines by exercising eight different clones of Pinot and ten clones of Chardonnay.

The Mornington terroir features an undulating ridge system, which receives considerable rainfall throughout the year. The soils vary from rich red clays, to lighter sandy loams depending on location. Kooyong's location was selected specifically to suit production of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varieties. Many vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula struggle with excessive canopy production due to the rich fertile soils. This is often translated in the wine as green or lacking body. The sandy base of Kooyong's terroir helps reduce this vigour. Each clone has its own inherent characteristics which, when skillfully blended together by accomplished winemakers, give wine its many textures and complexity.

Kooyong uses a variety of canopy management techniques to ensure high quality, concentrated grape production. Some of these include shoot thinning and fruit dropping. The Kooyong Estate parcels are situated on the Moorooduc flats of the Mornington Peninsula. The land Is slightly graded facing a north direction. The vineyard has been planted with rows running from South to North, which ensures maximum sunlight exposure. The vines are planted using the vertical shoot position (VSP) trellising system. The vines have been spaced out to reduce shading and increase fruit exposure to sunlight.

Wines are made on site to techniques specifically designed to deal with numerous small batches. The philosophy is to preserve the vineyard characters exhibited by the fruit. Chardonnay is whole bunch pressed and transferred to new and used French oak. Fermentation occurs naturally without yeast additions. All of the Pinot Noir fruit is hand picked and 100 per cent de-stemmed into open vat fermenters. The fruit is chilled to approximately 8-10 degrees and then allowed to warm up ambiently. Spontaneous fermentation occurs about 4-8 days later. The Massale parcels use only 10 per cent to 15 per cent new French oak. The wine is then bottled after approximately 12 months. This shorter maturation period is designed to make this wine more approachable when young. Handpicked Pinot Gris and Viognier is whole bunch pressed and transferred to used French oak. By using only old oak, the Pinot Gris wines receive the benefit of added texture without any oak flavours being imparted.

Kooyong is well equipped with an advanced irrigation system. This allows the winemaking team to administer water to each vine depending on the stress levels expressed by the vines. Kooyong's site receives less rainfall per annum than surrounding vineyards an the Mornington ridge system. The use of an irrigation network enables a high degree of control over the development of both the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines.
