About The Wine

This is consistently one of the best value Pinot Gris in the country.

if you were to make a list of Australia's most popular high-quality Pinot Gris, this Beurrot Pinot Gris from Kooyong in Mornington Peninsula would rank very near the top of the list.

The main reason: fruit is very good. Mornington Peninsula could lay claim to being the premier region in the country for 'serious' Pinot Gris. The lush texture and volume of flavour lending itself to a little more winemaking than the straight up an down Gris more commonly seen.

With 94 points from Ned Goodwin MW, you can't go wrong here.

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

"This was once chardonnay-like across its oak-derived vanillins and lees-inflected midriff, mealy and creamy. Now a swan, exhibiting more gris-centric genetics and all the better for it: slippery. Viscous. Nashi pear and ripe apple gelato flavours teem across the midriff, directed by a sash of almond-soused phenolics and mineral tension. About as good as gris gets." - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Our winemaking philosophy is to best preserve the inherent characteristics present in the fruit while making wines of elegance, finesse, texture, complexity and structure.

Our practices in the winery are minimalist. The fermentation of all our wines occurs naturally by way of native ambient yeasts. This is also the case for the malolactic fermentations.
