The hierarchy of Koooyong's wines is distinctive, with an ascension of complexity and length palpably clear as one reaches the apex: this stunning chardonnay and indeed, the Faultline, too. The difference? The Farrago is furled across a mineral beam, that opens more readily, exposing the fruit and joy of the wine with a little air. Stony. Tangerine, peach and nectarine segue to a lime-inflected flintiness, filling out across the palate with notes of hay, oatmeal and lees-inflected curd. The oak is perfectly positioned as a signpost to guide this beauty across the next decade.

This is so perfect it’s not funny. Such an even glide of flavour; so well manicured; so slinky-soft and just so satisfying to close. Stonefruits, minerals, grains and oak. It’s a succulent wine; it’s a celebration of the chardonnay grape; it feels both elegant and powerful at once.

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.
