Kooyong (where the wild fowl gather) is located on the Port Phillip Estate at the northern end of the Mornington Peninsula, Australia’s foremost cool climate maritime wine growing region. Established in 1996, the majority of the organically farmed estate is devoted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with small plantings of other varieties. Glen Hayley took over as head Winemaker in 2015 for Kooyong and the Port Phillip Estate, both of which are part of the Gjergja family domain. Hayley’s winemaking is classic and uncluttered. His wines are not fined and mostly unfiltered, always striving for elegance which he perceives as a balance between supple fruit, fine savouriness and length, with full respect to the site that it was grown on.
