KOOYONG WINES Haven Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula 2014

Haven Pinot Noir is sourced from a protected 1.32ha single vineyard block, planted to the MV6 clone. It is the most sheltered of the Kooyong vineyard blocks and this gives the wine its name.. After traditional vinification the wine is matured in French oak barriques (25% new) for around 14 months. The style is distinct and characterful with ripe dark cherry, red cherry and herb garden aromatics, supple yet fine, almost muscular tannins, and an underlying richness of flavour, volume and mineral length.

Rainfall is moderate, throughout winter and the growing season. Most of the vineyards are located between just above sea level and 200 metres. Soils range from weathered volcanic soils to sandy loams and friable well-drained clays. Mornington Peninsula is best known for making elegant cool climate Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and sublime Pinot Noir.

The vertically positioned vines are anchored in meaner light sandy clay soils. About 30 hectares of the property is planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris.

Langton’s Selections Kooyong Chardonnay, Kooyong Faultline Chardonnay, Kooyong Farrago Chardonnay, Kooyong Pinot Noir, Kooyong Haven Pinot Noir, Kooyong Meres Pinot Noir, Kooyong Ferrous Pinot Noir Established in 1995 Kooyong Winery is located on a gentle-sloping 93 hectare property adjoining the Devilbend Nature Reserve “where the wild fowl gather.” This northern end of the Mornington Peninsula is generally drier and warmer than the south. The vertically positioned vines are anchored in meaner light sandy clay soils. About 30 hectares of the property is planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. The cane-pruned vineyard is divided up into sections. The highly intuitive graduate in biological sciences and applied winemaking, Sandro Mosele – something of a local superstar – has focused on individual vineyard parcels. The philosophy is to preserve the vineyard characters exhibited by the fruit. The Chardonnays are whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented; the Estate, Faultline and Farrago wines see up to 30% new oak. The easy drinking Clonale Chardonnay will only see roughly 10-15% new oak. The Estate Pinot Noir, Haven, Meres and Ferrous Pinot Noirs all special vineyard selections based on site specific character are made in typical Burgundian fashion and aged in a combination of 30% new and seasoned French oak for 18 months. The rather good Massale Pinot Noir is only matured in oak for 12 months before release. Kooyong also makes a more than half decent Pinot Gris. The main point about Kooyong is that it is a pace-setter. Mosele has imagination and flair. The wines express the nuances of domain and overall laissez faire philosophy. His wines are really worth seeking out. At some point it may find itself in the mainstream of the secondary wine market. Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's
