Attractive citrus scents combine with blossoming white flowers and honeysuckle on the nose. Fresh mandarin and ginger spice dominate the palate with lemon pith, white nectarine and toasted cashew. The briny acidity provides a linear freshness resulting in excellent length and a chalky texture.

Controlled, restrained and composed. Green apple, peach skin, white nectarine seamlessly interwoven, all contributing. Plus there is a lick of milk bottle top and spice from oak, adding complexity and interest. Neat and expertly tailored.

Wine of the Week, February 2019
Calling all lovers of Chablis. If you are finding your fresh, citrus/mineral favourite increasingly expensive then here is a very good Australian alternative from Kooyong on the Mornington Peninsula. There is a floral/talcum powder nose leading on to an impressive intensity and acidity on the palate. Think pithy mandarin and grapefruit, hints of ripe stone fruits, with just a hint of nuttiness. Wonderfully fresh and beguiling. My bet is you’ll empty the bottle quick smart.

Description

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.

An architectural landmark and one of the most exciting food and wine destinations in Australia, Kooyong Wines is located at Port Phillip Estate.
