Located on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, Kooyong Estate is one of the region's finest producers, with their wines rarely failing to impress. Kooyong's Beurrot Pinot Gris has established itself among Australia's benchmark example of Pinot Gris and the 2020 vintage is another wonderful example.
With a faint bronze hue, the 2020 Kooyong Beurrot Pinot Gris has an expressive nose of pear, quince, fresh hay and almonds. It combines a textured mid-palate with a fine phenolic edge that delivers flavours of red and green apples. The wine closes with orange citrus pith and a rosewater accented finish.
"93 Points. A step up here with a really impressive Pinot Gris. The Beurrot vineyard comprises two parcels of Pinot Gris (‘Beurrot’, by the way, is an old Burgundian name for Pinot Gris). The original is just 0.24 hectares, while the larger parcel, which obviously provides the majority of the fruit, is 2.74 hectares. It is planted with a density of 5,600 vines per hectare. After harvesting, the grapes were gently whole-bunch pressed directly into old French oak for fermentation. After that, ten months on lees, with no bâtonnage and then bottling with minimal filtration and no fining. Pale straw, there is serious intensity here. Minerals and pears, fresh crisp apples and florals. There is fine balance, good power and serious concentration, as well as impressive persistence. Still youthful, we can expect even more from it over the next two to three years. With appealing texture and a finely crafted finish, this Pinot Gris is delicious now will drink well for some time to come. $32. Drink: 2022 - 2025"- Ken Gargett, winepilot.com
