  • 2020 Estate Pinot Gris, Paringa Estate Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2020 Estate Pinot Gris, Paringa Estate

    £2095

    This superb Pinot Gris has lifted varietal aromas of fresh-cut pear and green apple, leading to a refreshing palate of crisp, ripe pear and vibrant citrus fruit flavours. This Pinot Gris is richly flavoured with a lovely mid-palate texture and balance.

    The grapes for this wine come from 2 vineyards.  The 1st  is situated in the cool climate sub-region of Red Hill at an altitude of 146 metres above sea level. The estate vines are 14 years old and they provide 50% of the fruit for this wine. The remaining 50% comes from a contracted grower in Moorooduc which is a slightly warmer site and adds complexity and a layered dimension to the wine. The Mornington Peninsula is influenced by the cooling maritime climate, which helps the grapes to retain acidity as they ripen. The soils are generally red basalt, which stores sufficient water supplies to keep the vine irrigated through the warm summer season.  These soils are the result of ancient lava flows, are iron-rich, moderately fertile and drain surface water easily. This results in healthy vines with deep root systems, producing high-quality berries that translate into intense, concentrated wines.

    2016 Beurrot Pinot Gris, Kooyong

    £2350

    If you were to make a list of Australia’s most popular high-quality Pinot Gris, this Beurrot Pinot Gris from Kooyong in Mornington Peninsula would rank very near the top of the list.

    The nose of pear, yellow peach, nougat, a gingery spiciness, hay and musk is very alluring and hints at what’s to come. The palate is lively and dry and has developed a satisfying richness after 2 years in bottle.

    2018 Beurrot Pinot Gris, Kooyong

    £2350

    Golden straw in hue, the 2018 Beurrot Pinot Gris shows perfumed aromas of honey-tinged apple and pear skin, followed by lemon pith, rose petal and spice. The palate displays lively green apple and kaffir lime flavours and is delicately textured with zesty acidity and a savoury oatmeal finish.

    The Beurrot comprises two Pinot Gris parcels: the tiny original 0.24-hectare section annexing the Meres block, and the all-Pinot Gris block which, at 2.74 hectares, provides the majority of the fruit. The large block is planted to a density of 5,600 vines per hectare.

    2013 Beurrot Pinot Gris, Kooyong

    £2750

    If you were to make a list of Australia’s most popular high-quality Pinot Gris, this Beurrot Pinot Gris from Kooyong in Mornington Peninsula would rank very near the top of the list.

    Bright straw colour. Aromas of struck match accentuate an expressive nose of almond, caramilized sugar, nougat, lychee and sweet fresh hay. The palate is rich yet dry and structured, with a viscous texture characteristic of the variety.  It still has really fresh acidity after 7 years and is just a delcious example of evolving bottle aged pinot gris.

    2020 Verve Chardonnay, Ocean Eight

The grapes for Verve Chardonnay are picked one week earlier than any other vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula and only old barrels are used for vinification to highlight the vibrancy of the grapes.

  • 2013 Faultline Chardonnay, KooyongWhite Wine

    2013 Faultline Chardonnay, Kooyong

    £4200

    This 2013 Faultline Chardonnay now has 7 years of age and is mouth-wateringly beautiful.

    The acclaimed wine author Tyson Stelzer said of this wine: ‘Scintillating. Effortlessly unites gunflint with pristine white peach and grapefruit, even nuances of white pepper. There is energy, tension and light-footedness and at the same time expansive presence and concentration that offers breadth and remarkable persistence. Benchmark’.

    The Faultline Vineyard

    Faultline, the largest block at Kooyong, is planted predominantly to Chardonnay in an area where the soils are characterised by a friable dark brown loamy clay.    Adjacent to the Farrago block to the West, the Faultline block is more gently sloping. The block is bounded by a geological fault that runs along the south-western end, beyond which the soil becomes quite poorly drained. Before this fault, however, the soils are well-drained and high in organic matter.   The Chardonnay from the Faultline block is rich and full, defined by a generosity of texture while still supported by Kooyong’s inherent minerality.

  • 2012 Faultline Chardonnay, KooyongWhite Wine

    2012 Faultline Chardonnay, Kooyong

    £4200

    This is handpicked, single-site chardonnay at its very best — a whole bunch of pressed grapes, fermented with natural yeasts and left on its lees for 12 months. It’s a pretty hands-off process, really, but that’s the secret to letting the character of the site show its true colours. The result is a wine layered with complex savoury notes matched with crystalline, fresh, zesty fruit that fills the palate. Flinty mineral characters lead to grapefruit and lemon zest fruit while the barrel influence brings softer nougat, cashew and toast.

    This wine can be drunk now or cellared for another 5-8 years for something very special!

  • 2012 Farrago Chardonnay, Kooyong Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2012 Farrago Chardonnay, Kooyong

    £4200

    This 2012 Farrago is supremely elegant, complex and balanced, seamless and so aromatic.  Reminiscent of Puligny Montrachet – peach, melon and nectarine knit with fresh vanilla oak and underpinned by nuances of grapefruit, ginger and cloves.

    Thre palate just feels beautiful on the tongue. Smooth and creamy, with delightful roundness and fatness, it’s long, pristine and tightly focussed, with intense stonefruit, melon and citrus flavours deftly knit with vanilla oak and wrapped in a racy acidity.  The finish lingers for a ridiculously long time.   White Burgundy of this quality would cost you triple.

    The Farrago Vineyard

    Exclusively planted to Chardonnay, this small block is gently north-sloping with sediments ranging from those higher in sand to those higher in clay.  The best fruit within the block comes from the zone higher in clay where the soil has a mottled appearance due to high sandstone pebble content, hence the block’s name Farrago.   The Chardonnay from the Farrago block is defined by a precise linear character with strong silicaceous minerality. At its best, this is the premier white wine with the greatest ageing potential.

  • 2011 Verve Chardonnay, Ocean EightWhite Wine

    2011 Verve Chardonnay, Ocean Eight

    £4200

    Ocean Eight is a family-owned and run by the Aylward family. Chris and Gail Aylward first made wine on the Mornington Peninsula in 1997 when they established the iconic Kooyong Estate.   Having sold Kooyong in 2004 they setup Ocean Eight on the southern and more cooler side of the Mornington Peninsula.   Ocean Eight is now run by their son Mike Aylward and his wife Hollie.   The 2011 Chardonnay lives up to their reputation – macadamia-nut aromas with some clove spices resulting from the barrel fermentation. The fruit is very much in the lime and grapefruit spectrum. The finish is the highlight with a racy acid and mineral mouth-feel up the centre of the palate.

  • 2008 Farrago Chardonnay, Kooyong Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2008 Farrago Chardonnay, Kooyong

    £4900

    A truly stunning rich and elegant Chardonnay.   Mouthwatering intense stonefruit, pear and fig notes are on the nose, leading to a rich penetrating palate of ripe nectarine, nuts, brioche and lees/barrel-ferment nuances.   Finish is very long, rich with nervy grapefruit acidity.   In short its a demi-god of a wine that will live long in the memory.

  • 2009 Estate Chardonnay, Paringa Estate Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2009 Estate Chardonnay, Paringa Estate

    £5500

    An exceptional Paringa Estate Chardonnay that has benefited from being aged in our cellars.  Aromas of butterscotch and fig and layered with ripe and rich citrus.  The palate is textured with the perfect line of acidity, stone fruit and citrus are intermingled with savoury nutty barrel-ferment flavours.

    The Paringa Estate vineyard is an exceptional site. North facing, the 10 acres of un-irrigated rich, red, volcanic soil curl around the slope like an amphitheatre, sheltered from the harsh South and South Westerly winds. Whilst Pinot Noir has always been Paringa’s most awarded variety, the unique microclimate also produces exceptional Shiraz and Chardonnay.
