Kooyong Pinot Noir

Each case contains 2 bottles each of:

2019 Meres Pinot Noir

Meres comes from a 0.6 ha block on a gentle north-facing slope. The combination of soil, exposure and low vigour produce a highly aromatic and perfumed Pinot. Meres is Kooyong's most ethereal and savoury expression of Pinot Noir. 

Red cherry, raspberry and cranberry are present on the silky, mid-weighted palate. Energy and brightness are key, but not at the expense of length and depth. Lively acidity and dusty tannins from the whole bunch inclusion offer grip on the pithy orange peel accented finish. The acid and tannin provide the wine with freshness and the foundation for future development.

2019 Ferrous Pinot Noir

Vines in the Ferrous block produce naturally low yields due to free draining soils and high exposure. The soil here has a greater prevalence of ironstone pebbles that give the wine its unique character.

The 2019 Ferrous opens on the savoury side with iron, clove, allspice, and lavender. Fruity and floral notes appear, displaying flavours of cranberry, orange zest, violets and cherry, while whole-bunch aromas add complexity. There is gentle power to the palate with an attractive combination of savoury flavours and purple fruits. The ultra-fine tannins offer a pleasingly dry, moreish spiciness, leading to a long and sustained finish of black cherry and lifted florals. While the wine can be enjoyed now, it demands cellaring to show its full potential.

2019 Haven Pinot Noir

The Haven block is the most sheltered of Kooyong's vineyard sites. Protection from strong winds allows the vines to keep a rich green canopy until comparatively late in the ripening season. Haven enters into the purplish fruit spectrum that is rich and lush, with firm tannic structure. 

The 2019 Haven’s brooding, fruit-driven nose speaks strongly of the Northern growing areas of the Mornington Peninsula. Bright fruit notes of red and black cherry together with plummier tones transform into aromas of dry rosemary, cooling mint, and dried spices such as cardamom and anise. Fresh, supple fruits run through the core of the palate, cajoled by fine and chewy tannins into length and drive. Dense flavours of citrus and sour cherry contribute to a powerful finish, a hallmark of Haven.
