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.. Venerable vintages from the most precious parcels»

Tim Burvill draws his insiration from the crisp Sancerre wines of France. His straight forward, low intervention winemaking techniques translate into solid Chardonnay wines with bold varietal definition and intense fruit. The same careful approach is taken in the vineyard. Grapes are harvested in the cool of the night just as the tropical flavours begin to appear. A completely wild, indigenous yeast vinification serves to enhance the aromatics, ferments are run very cool to retain valuable volatiles. A component of large format oak ferments reduce acid harshness while contributing complexity. Five months of lees stirring compliments the mid palate texture and contributes a rich nutty taste.
Pale green hue. Pungent tropical and melon fruit laced with exotic dashes of kiwi and cashew. Stylish and elegant, the vibrant fruit drenches the tastebuds with a wave of intense pineapple, peaches and nectarine. The mid palate is textural with a bounty of creamy, mealy complexity derived from extended lees stirring. A balanced acid finish, crisp, lingering on notes of clean tangerine and lemon freshness.
