Mornington Peninsula

The Mornington Peninsula is located approximately one hour south of Melbourne. A cool maritime climate,the region is virtually frost free, but is susceptible to high winds. 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 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
