"Kooyong Estate Pinot Noir comprises fruit from our Meres, Haven, and Ferrous blocks. It offers an overall expression of the Kooyong vineyard, with parcels of fruit from various soils and mesoclimates blended together to create the Estate label. Year after year the same parcels are consistently chosen, giving this wine an underlying likeness across vintages.The fruit was fermented in a combination of large-format oak foudre, large-format concrete tanks and stainless-steel tanks. Fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts, included a proportion of whole bunches and lasted 16 to 18 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques (20% of which were new) and puncheons and underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The maturation period was 12 months. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.The aromatic and expressive nose offers black cherry, floral and barrel-derived spice notes, together with complexing scents of citrus and lavender. There is a suppleness to the mid-palate, that offers flavours of pomegranate as well as earthier characters. Fine tannin provides structural support, which leads, with length and directness, to a pleasing forest fruit and sour cherry finish. This wine will greatly reward mid-term cellaring."
Winemaker's notes

"Red fruits, potpourri perfume mixed with spicy, sappy flavours and graphite fine tannins. Raspberry, rhubarb and earthy undergrowth in the mix along with a long, clean finish. Some more time in the bottle should serve it well."
