About The Wine

The Kooyong Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs are some of the finest representations of single-site Pinot Noir on the Peninsula.

Meres is the more lifted and aromatic expression from the famed 2015 vintage.

A portion of whole bunches were used in the fermenting process, lending structure and detail to the wine. Only a quarter of the oak used was new. For these wines, it's about telling an uninhibited story of the vineyard and season. 

The winemaking team has been very successful in 2015. With rave reviews from all who have sampled the 2015 release, Meres is sure to have a long and distinguished life ahead.

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

Halliday Wine Companion

"Far and away the most aromatic of Kooyong’s trio of Pinot Noirs, this is a high pitched soprano brimming with red fruits, all. The emphasis is on strawberry, red charry and raspberry , given a creamy lick of vanillan cinnamon oak at the seams and a sprightly tang of candied orange rind beaming across the wine’s centre. Amen!" - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Perfumed, spicy, liquorice root and amaro herbs, succulent red fruits. It’s medium bodied, silky and fine, with a deep sweep of fine pumice stone tannin, cool minerally acidity, delicious flavour, and that tasty Campari edge pushing through the finish. Here’s a lovely wine, and pretty much, it feels at ease with itself and ready to drink from any time…now." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Australian Wine Review

"Probably the most stem in this wine yet according to Glen – but fits the firm and striking depth. What a powerhouse! That length is exceptional. Super class, muscular Mornington Pinot. Almost reminds me of a Martinborough Pinot actually. Super." - Andrew Graham (Australian Wine Review)
