About The Wine

The Haven Pinot Noir is a beautiful expression of Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir.

A riot of floral aromatics and a seamless, slippery palate, this is a class act wine that drinks beautifully from day one.

With 96 points from Jeremy Oliver and 94 from Ned Goodwin MW and Gary Walsh, this completes the beautiful picture that is the Kooyong Single Vineyard release from the outstanding 2015 vintage.

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

Jeremy Oliver

"One of the finest releases under this label, with a deep, heady, rose petal perfume of intense red and black berries and cherries, cinnamon and nutmeg, that soaks up its fresh, tightly knit oak. Medium in weight, it’s juicy and mouthfilling, with a supremely elegant and harmonious presence of translucently pure cherry/berry fruit, fresh cedar/vanilla oak and fine-grained tannins, finishing with a lingering core of flavour, nuances of smoked bacon and a delightful acidity." - Jeremy Oliver

The Wine Front

"Roses, cherries, fragrant brown spices, some dried mint there too. Light to medium bodied, silky tannin, fine almost minerally feel to the acidity, delicious flavour, and great to drink. Love it. My only reservation is that it does not finish as long and assuredly as the other two single vineyards, though that may come with time. Either way, it’s delightful." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Sturdy and dark-fruited as is Kooyong’s stamp, Haven is a plume of bing cherry, blueberry, black plum and cinnamon flavours, given energy by bright acidity and silken tannins following. This is pinot’s domain, in a riper sense. Vanillan, cedar oak frames and creams the wine’s edges, nestling in nicely to be absorbed, surely, into the generous melee in time." - Ned Goodwin (Australian Wine Companion)

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.
