Kooyong Estate Kooyong Farrago Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Mornington Victoria
Port Phillip Estate is situated at Red Hill, very near the heart of beautiful Mornington Peninsula. Farrago is a single hectare, gently sloped block planted to mottled clay soils and ironstone pebbles, a highly auspicious terroir for Chardonnay, which invigorates the vines and infuses grapes with luxurious minerality and well defined linearity. Parcels of hand picked fruit are gently whole bunch pressed into French oak barriques for a wild indigenous yeast ferment, followed by a year's maturation, racked for clarity and a minimal filtration to preserve the integrity of a resplendent vineyard.
