About The Wine

Kooyong are one of the icon estates from Mornington Peninsula. They have built a sterling reputation off the back of delivering consistent quality and value for their range of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir.

The Massale is the 'entry level' Pinot Noir in their range. It's a blend of fruit from their Tuerong and Balnarring vineyards. The aim is always to over-deliver with this wine and the Kooyong team invariably succeeds on that front.

The 2017 is another bargain release. A warm, dry vintage providing great intensity and flavour in the Pinot Noir fruit and they've turned out a beauty. Top value Pinot Noir here, with 92+ points from Campbell Mattinson - this is one of the best daily-drinking Pinot Noirs on the Peninsula.

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.

The Wine Front

"No hesitation on this one. It’s exactly what you’re looking for in a young drink-ready pinot noir. Complex, juicy, forward but not at the expense of structure or form. It’s spicy and autumnal but cherry-berry flavours keep it all moving swiftly along. Tannin is firm, dry and infused with woodsmoke. Indeed there’s a real woodsy feel to this wine, in a good way. It feels fine and lacy too. So many positives." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

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.
