Tannin rumbles through the wine, and indeed, you’d have to say Ferrous by name, Ferrous by nature here.

About The Wine

The Ferrous is the wilder and more exotic version of the Kooyong Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs.

A 'bunchier' style, ripped with tannin and imprssive drive, Ferrous is a more muscular and brooding expression of Pinot Noir from the Mornington Peninsula.

With 96 points from Ned Goodwin MW and 95 points from Gary Walsh, this is a benchmark example of the variety and a great example of site expression view through the lens of Pinot Noir.

About Kooyong

Kooyong is one of the Mornington Peninsula's most iconic wineries.

As with most wineries in the region, their focus is on premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their 'entry level' wines, the Clonale Chardonnay and Massale Pinot Noir offer very good value for money and a great snapshot of regional style.

The real core of the range is their outstanding Single Vineyard expressions of their pet varieties. These are benchmark wines crafted with extreme care and attention to detail. 

Kooyong are a regional flagbearer and have done much to lift the profile of the region as one of Australia's premier grape growing regions.

Critic Reviews

96Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Kooyong’s Single Vineyard Pinots exhibit darker shades across the variety’s multitude of personalities. There is an energy, a weighlessness, together with richness. The fruit ekes it way out of the savoury maze, licked with bramble, beetroot and etched by a whole cluster spike of aniseed and cardamon. The balance of fruit intensity and structural attributes augur well for a very bright future." - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"A lot of spice, and almost to a capsicum/mescal thing going on, aniseed, dried flowers and red fruits. Medium bodied, intense acidity, a sappy feel to it, layers of spice and herbal tossed through juicy red fruits. Tannin rumbles through the wine, and indeed, you’d have to say Ferrous by name, Ferrous by nature here. A riot of bunchy spice on a long finish. No shortage of charisma here." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
