Kooyong Estate Pinot Noir 2022


The Estate Pinot is usually sourced from a trio of famous blocks, the Meres, Haven and Ferrous. Fermentation is in a combination of large format oak, large format concrete tanks and stainless steel. The wine then spends a year in French oak, a small proportion new, to mature. Pale garnet in colour, this is a fine and compelling Pinot with notes of spices, herbs, undergrowth, raspberries, aniseed, a touch of woodsmoke, cherries and a mix of red fruits that swirl through the aromas. A silky texture and satiny tannins, the wine is focused and impressively balanced. Length is excellent in a lovely Pinot which has more to offer over the coming four to eight years.
