Kooyong ‘Meres’ Pinot Noir
Polish, power and poise. Depth of fruit and flavour but it never becomes bogged down; it keeps flowing with cherry-plum and chicory flavour, notes of coffee grounds and undergrowth more than enough to raise your pulse. Excellent length. Terrific wine.
Kooyong ‘Haven’ Pinot Noir
Powerfully built pinot noir. Strong notes of black cherry, woody spice, macerated plum and toast, with both cloves notes and alcohol warmth participants in the parade. Firm tannin ropes and secures the components together. Now or later; it has a life ahead of it.
Kooyong ‘Ferrous’ Pinot Noir
Promises a big story from the outset, all showy oak and velvety fruit, but once the opening number has died down a web of finer details is revealed, and there the mesmerising begins. This needs a little time but it has tight sleeves and all the right cards tucked therein. Plums, cherries, steel, spice, polished cedarwood and subtle foresty elements. It’s long, fine and more simply, fantastic to spend time with. Would be a welcome guest at dinner anytime.
