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»

St Johns Road Prayer Garden Grenache CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Barossa South Australia
There's a 120 year old patch of Grenache on the Riebke family vineyard at Ebenezer known as Prayer Garden, so named because the pruners and pickers must kneel to husband the ancient vines. Cuttings from Prayer Garden were transplanted to a flat on the neighbouring Jones Road property, they yield a vibrant style of Grenache that's brimming with character and charm. Fruit is treated to ten days of ferment in open two tonnes vats, followed by ten months in 500 litres oak puncheons. Cherries and raspberry, licorice, savouryness and a twist of warm gamey spice.
