Chardonnay Mornington Victoria
Kooyong Estate was established with a view to craft the most articulate wines, minimal harvests from measured blocks which are defined by their eloquence. There's less than a half hectare of vines earmarked for Faultline, a place of propitious deep clay soils which yield Chardonnay of exquisite earthy characters, great depth and fuller, richer palate. Hand picked grapes are gently whole bunch pressed into French oak barriques for a spontaneous ambient yeast ferment, followed by a year's maturation on sedimentery yeast lees, bottled unfined and minimal filtration.
Yellow straw hues. Bouquet of maritime Mornington breeze, seaweed and iodine, preserved lemon and a touch of stone fruit, notes of ginger, struck match and lees derived richness. The long, linear palate is tightly focused around pristine citrus and stone fruit characters, hints of oatmeal and cashew, a luxuriously intense saline acidity.
