A lens on Kooyong Wines

WINE AVAILABLE

Kooyong is a specialist Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producer located on the Mornington Peninsula, one of Australia’s foremost cool climate maritime wine growing regions. Kooyongs’ meticulous sustainable viticulture and sensitive minimalist winemaking produces site-expressive wines of detail and structure. All wines are estate grown, vinified and bottled.

Kooyong Chief Winemaker, Glen Hayley’s winemaking philosophy is driven by authenticity; wine that speaks of place, preserving the character of the fruit and celebrating the vineyard in which it was grown. It is the fine balance between scrupulous attention to detail and minimal intervention that allows wine to fully express provenance. Glen’s passion for natural fermentation techniques extends beyond wine to sour beer, cider and fermented food.

Serendipity saw Glen discover the world of wine. A job in the industry on a gap year in Vancouver offered an addictive glimpse of his future vocation. Returning to Melbourne, Glen completed a Bachelor of Viticultural Science and Wine Production, while working in cool and warm climate wineries across Australia, France, Germany, New Zealand and the USA. His time with premium new world Chardonnay and Pinot Noir producers in Central Otago and Sonoma County, along with a concentration on white wines in the Loire Valley and the Mosel, helped shape his thinking.

Do join Glen for this tasting of the Kooyong range, with a focus on the single-block expressions. With all wines coming from the 2018 vintage, this is an excellent opportunity to explore the intricate detail and differences within the Tuerong vineyard. As a contrast and a comparison, we will also taste the Clonale and Massale, blends of estate-grown parcels of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from our Tuerong and Balnarring vineyards.
