"a cracking Chardonnay"- Ken Gargett
Located on the Mornington Peninsula, Kooyong Estate is a specialist cool climate producer with their Chardonnay always a standout among an impressive array of wines. The Kooyong Estate Chardonnay is produced from grapes grown on Kooyong's Faultline and Farrago blocks. It offers an overall expression of the Kooyong vineyard and achieves a remarkable consistency of style each vintage.
This 2019 Kooyong Estate Chardonnay opens with complex aromas of lemon curd, white florals, mandarin and cashew. The palate is deftly weighted, with great length and power that combines bright citrus acidity with persistent stone fruit flavours. Another wonderful example of Kooyong Chardonnay that will no doubt only improve with time in bottle.
"94 Points. This is a cracking Chardonnay and compelling evidence that the Mornington Peninsula must be included in any debate about which are our top regions for the variety. The colour is like sunshine glinting off gold. The aromatics are a weave of peaches, florals, a hint of cashews, stonefruit, beeswax, spices and seamless oak integration. A creamy texture for the full length of this terrific wine. The intensity is maintained throughout, over nicely balanced acidity. Lovely complexity is evident, though there is no doubt more to come. Towards the finish, appealing passionfruit characters emerge. This offers five to six years at least, of delicious drinking. Really like this. It screams out for a crab salad. Drink: 2021-2028"- Ken Gargett, Winepilot.com.
"93 Points. It's easy to sit back and chill out with this in hand. It's layered with white stone fruit, grapefruit and a sprinkling of cinnamon and ginger. Good energy to the palate, tangy acidity and integrated oak adding some depth and flavour. 13.5% alc. Drink by: 2028" - Jane Faulkner, winecompanion.com.au.
