Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak of little places, husbanded to artisanal winemaking practices, the most wonderful expressions of Mornington... Venerable vintages from the most precious parcels»

Parcels of Chardonnay grapes with a slightly larger component of Pinot Noir are hand picked from the most prestigious vineyards within the comprehensive Hardy viticultural portfolio in Tasmania. Following a gentle whole bunch press and fining, individual batches are vinified on light grape solids before the completion of malolactic on primary ferment lees. Once clarified, the base wines are judiciously assembled to style and prepared for secondary fermentation in bottle. Extended maturation on yeast lees builds further complexity and depth of character into the wine. A traditional expedition dosage completes the process, adding the last components of complexity and ensuring precise palate balance. Alcohol 12.4%
Crystal clear with an extremely fine bead and persistent mousse, delicate colour of fresh straw with a bright green/ gold hue. On the nose, the wine has an unmistakably inviting and complex melange of aromas with influences of fresh oyster, sour dough yeast as well as the aromas of exotic spices, vanilla bean and nougat. An elegant, mineral palate structure with flavours evolving in the glass around lychee, truffle, cinnamon and lanolin. Exhibits fantastic persistence of flavour, the natural acidity and subtle quality oak tannins are the backbone of this textural wine. Sealed under the highest quality cork available, sublime upon release, Brut Elite will continue to evolve and develop exceptional complexity.
