Kooyong Meres Pinot Noir 2018 has a perfumed bouquet with bright layers of rose petal, raspberry, lavender and subtle cool spice notes. The palate has a long, juicy and sappy core of ripe forest fruits – raspberry and blackberry – that is complemented and neatly surrounded by fine earthy tannin. The power of the fruit-driven palate offers early appeal, however the tannin and structure of the wine will ensure good medium-term cellaring potential. 

This single-block wine is sourced from 0.9 ha of 19-year-old vines on a gentle north-facing slope. These vines are the most exposed of all our Pinot Noir plantings, leading to low vigour and low yields. The combination of the soils (less loamy topsoil and more clay subsoil than the other blocks), exposure and low vigour produces highly aromatic and perfumed red-fruited Pinot Noir with a structure that, as the vines age, is becoming more robust and serious. This wine was fermented in large-format concrete and stainless-steel tanks. The ferment, with a portion of whole bunches, occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts and lasted 18 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques (of which 20% were new) and underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked only once, with a total maturation period of 14 months. It was then bottled without fining or filtration.
