Philanthropists and patrons of the arts, Mr and Mrs Besen, AO and AO respectively, took a highly aesthetic approach to the pursuit of viticulture. Healthy soils and happy fauna were the means to an end, good wine comes from a sound ecology, but great wine needs the inspiration of a holistic engagement with the arts. It is here at Healesville that habitues can savour the Sauvignon while immersing themselves amongst the work of our national masters.

Just a few kilometres north of Lowburn, near the windswept shores of frigid Lake Dunstan, atop the parched and laborious terroirs of Central Otago, a high country merino stud between the Amisfield and Parkburn streams was sown to vineyards two decades ago. Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir.

Kooyong Estate Kooyong Meres Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Mornington Victoria
Kooyong Estate is located at Tuerong and focuses on growing a small range of Burgundesque varietal clones. There are five distinct vineyards of which three are planted to Pinot Noir, the fastidiously husbanded blocks produce stately wines. Meres is a small, single hectare block planted to a gentle north facing slope, the most exposed parcel of Kooyong's Pinot Noir, a place of low vigor and restricted yields. The frugal loam over clay soils produce highly aromatic, beautifully perfumed grapes of velvet tannins and sound structure.

The cultural practices of Kooyong respect and nurture the inherent character of each block. All vines are hand cane pruned, if the season is showing higher yields, bunches are thinned to focus the intensity of flavour in remaining clusters. All grapes are hand picked and the vinification is nothing short of meticulous. Parcels of destemmed grapes and whole bunches are vinified through the action of spontaneous, ambient yeasts in a mix of concrete vats and fermenters for eighteen days. Upon completion, batches are pressed and racked into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for malolactic and fourteen months maturation, bottled unfiltered and unfined.
