Kooyong ‘Meres’ Pinot Noir
This turns the screws on quality. It’s firm and varietally rich with meat, spice, black cherry and volleys of undergrowth and assorted earth notes. It’s as if it’s been borne up out of the ground. It’s savoury, smoky and sweet-fruited, but in the end it’s nothing but itself.
Kooyong ‘Haven’ Pinot Noir
It rises to power on the back of meaty, weighty, black cherried fruit flavour, though notes of dried spice, smoky oak and tangy cranberry certainly contribute to the ascension. Ropes of tannin are the parliament in which the flavour cavorts. The outstanding form of this wine continues.
Kooyong ‘Ferrous’ Pinot Noir
Super tight and structural with gun smoke, flint, dry cherry and sinewy herb notes striking a distinctive pose through the palate. Controlled reduction is a key part of the wine's make-up. So too tannin and acid. So too a charm of its own design.
