2018 Pinot Noir
2018 Pinot Noir Red
Yarra Valley
USD 81.90 / 750 ml
Accolades 95 Points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review Gold Medal, Winewise Championship Awards 2020 Gold Medal, Royal Melbourne Wine Awards 2019 Gold Medal, Royal Queensland Wine Show 2019 Gold Medal, Yarra Valley Wine Show 2019 Silver Medal, National Wine Show of Australia 2019 Silver Medal, Rutherglen Wine Show 2019 Bronze Medal, Royal Adelaide Wine Show 2019 Vineyard Fruit for this wine was sourced from the Yarra Yering planting of Pinot Noir, containing some of the oldest vines of their type in the Yarra Valley. A mixed planting of four clones was undertaken in 1969, then followed up with replication in 1981 (top of the slope) and 1984 (bottom of the slope). Winemaking The grapes were hand-picked and chilled overnight. Processing the following day along a fruit sorting table and destemmed gently into half-tonne open-fermenters. Stalks were added to some of the fermenters to contribute subtle structure, complexity and aroma. Working of the ferment by gentle hand plunging twice daily contributes to the soft fruit palate along with gentle pressing. Maturation for 10 months in all French barrels with 30% new and the balance older oak. Wine Violet perfumed nose, mixed cherry fruits with a pinch of aniseed spice. Red cherry fruits explode on the front palate. A silky elegance combined with very fine tannin structure, both grape and oak tannin, produce a medium-bodied yet powerful style, the 2018 delivering a juicy fruit palate; immediately delicious. Cellaring Pinot Noir is such an enjoyable young wine. If you can keep yourself away for up to 10 years under suitable cellaring conditions you will be rewarded. 13.0% Alc.

Kooyong Haven Single Block Pinot Noir
2018 Pinot Noir Red
Mornington Peninsula
USD 77.42 / 750 ml
The 2018 Haven has a compelling bouquet of layered red and black fruits with a hint of lavender and dried rose petals. As is typical for this block, spices (anise and clove) and earthier notes appear. The palate is medium-bodied yet densely built with very fine tannins and a spicy line of acidity. Dark fruits and black cherry roll through with detail and precision. The fragrant and lifted cherry finish carries the wine to length with cake spice and curacao accenting the powerful finish. While it can be enjoyed now, it will require cellaring to reach its full potential. This single-block wine is sourced from 0.6 ha of 22-year-old vines within, as the name suggests, the most sheltered of our vineyard sites. The lack of exposure to strong winds allows the vines to keep a rich green canopy until comparatively late in the ripening period and the resulting Haven wines always possess fruit in the more purplish spectrum, with a certain richness and lushness yet a firm underlying tannic structure. The vineyard (6.88 ha in total) comprises seven different parcels, with the same two parcels historically being selected for this wine. The fruit was entirely de-stemmed and fermentation took place in large-format wooden and stainless-steel tanks. Fermentation occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts and lasted 18 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques (of which 22% were new) and underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked only once, with the total maturation period lasting 14 months. It was then bottled without fining or filtration.

Kooyong Meres Single Block Pinot Noir
2018 Pinot Noir Red
Mornington Peninsula
USD 77.42 / 750 ml
Shy at first, the 2018 Meres evolves to open a deeply perfumed and aromatic nose; pretty red fruits (strawberry and cherry) together with rhubarb and floral notes. Subtle savoury spice aromas emerge. The palate is delicate yet deep with an attractive supple mid-palate, built on vibrant red fruits and earthy tannin. Long, fine-tuned and energetic, the wine finishes with dried orange peel and cranberry acidity. Always the most attractive, aromatic and supple of the trio, this vintage is no different. It offers gratification now but will reward mid-term cellaring. This single-block wine is sourced from 0.6 ha of 21-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 produce 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 tank. The ferment, with a portion of whole bunches, occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts and lasted 17 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques (of which 28% 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.

Kooyong Ferrous Single Block Pinot Noir
2018 Pinot Noir Red
Mornington Peninsula
USD 77.42 / 750 ml
Comparatively open for Ferrous, the 2018 vintage shows typical floral notes of violet and rose together with earthier tones of beetroot, brown spice and subtle whole-bunch influence. The trademark rust and iron quality float in and out providing complexity and engagement. Medium-bodied, yet naturally powerful, the palate is full of intense red berry flavour together with a line of dusty tannin that helps drive and support. Blood orange and a vibrant berry flavour enhance the long and compelling finish. Showing modestly now, Ferrous demands cellaring to fully show its potential. This single-block wine is sourced from 0.7 ha of gently sloping 21- year-old vines. These vines naturally produce low yields due to a combination of unique orientation, free drainage and high exposure. Together with this, the soil has a far greater prevalence of ironstone pebbles than any other part of the vineyard and delivers wine with great concentration and savoury tannic presence. This wine was fermented in a large-format concrete tank. The ferment, with a portion of whole bunches, occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts and lasted 19 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques (of which 30% 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.

The Alan Pinot Noir (Reserve Release)
2015 Pinot Noir Red
Barossa Valley
USD 72.83 / 750 ml
Garnet in colour with ruby hues. Rich aromas of spicy black cherry, red currant, wild forest fruits and raspberries and cream combine beautifully with herbal nuances of flowering thyme and notes of cedar and vanilla. A deep and brooding palate of black and red cherries is balanced by complex herbal notes and a hint of anise, showing wonderful texture and length with rolling, fine, velvety tannins. Maturation - Matured in 21% new and 79% seasoned French barriques for 10 months prior to blending and bottling. Reserve release. Cellaring potential - Excellent vintage, 20+ years (from vintage). * In 1981, fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue purchased a property in the Adelaide Hills with the intention of planting varieties well suited to the cooler climate of the region. The vineyard was originally part of a beautiful valley of apple orchards and natural forest that were destroyed by the Ash Wednesday bushfires in 1983. Sitting at an altitude of 550m with an annual average rainfall of 1100mm, the Lenswood vineyard slopes offer not only beautiful views towards the older vine country, but also provide enough sunshine to fully ripen the grapes, together with cooler temperatures to retain natural acidity. This reserve pinot noir is produced from hand-selected fruit from the best plots of 25-yearold vines and named as a tribute to Alan Archer, whose love of wine and food helped create The Chesser Cellar’s fame in Adelaide. *

Consistently one of Australia's best!
2017 Freycinet Pinot Noir Red
TAS
USD 71.30 / 750 ml
“This is Freycinet at its best, red fruits opening proceedings and then standing back for forest floor to bring complexity front and centre. Those pure and perfectly ripened cherry/strawberry/raspberry fruits then reassert their prime role in pinot that has years to go, tannins and acidity their guidance.” James Halliday 96/100 Cellar Selections 2018 Freycinet Vineyard has a fine track record and a reputation for producing exemplary Pinot Noirs over 30 years since 1988. The 2017 Vintage is proving to be one of the classic great years alongside 2015, 2012, 2010 2009... The season was characterised by a cooler, wetter first half which then tapered off into a warmer, drier second half. Overall ripening was delayed by 10 to 12 days which facilitated the development of remarkable flavour and colour intensities. The Vineyard bloodline and pedigree in this wine is unmistakable. As always, the wine is a delicious expression of the grape, our site and the season. A deep crimson colour, with arresting aromas and a succulent dark plum and black cherry palate. The aroma and flavour purity has an abundance of complexity, colour and tannins typical of our site. We are proud of the many accolades, awards and recognition that Freycinet Pinot Noir has received over the years. Some notable mentions are listed below: - Freycinet Pinot Noir is the only Tasmanian Pinot Noir included in Langton’s Classification of Australia’s finest wines - Freycinet Pinot Noir has been included several times in renowned Wine Authority James Halliday’s Wine Companion “Best of the Best” list and also in his prestigious Top 100 list an extremely tough competition. -. - Freycinet Pinot Noir has often been awarded the Top ranking 5 Gold Stars in MW Rob Geddes’ “Australian Wine Vintages” Gold Book. Quote: “This award recognises those Vignerons and Winemakers with the ability to achieve consistently high standards, resulting in a wine that is truly among the World’s best wines”. Pinot Noir is very responsive and expressive of the location where it is grown. Our warm, sheltered site within the overall cool Tasmanian climate enables us to produce a more structured, robust, richly-flavoured, masculine style of Pinot Noir as opposed to the lighter, more feminine styles from cooler sites. We strive to grow a moderate yield of fully ripe, well-exposed (to sun), healthy fruit. In the Winery we prefer a protective “new world” approach to winemaking, rather than the traditional “old world” approach. The 2017 Freycinet Pinot Noir was matured in French oak barriques (30% new) and has the hallmarks of power, concentration and complexity. It provides thorough drinking enjoyment as a young wine (decanting recommended) but will become truly special when aged carefully in a cool cellar (5 to 15 years). “One of Australia’s iconic pinots - a testament to the magnificent amphitheatre site and winemaker/viticulturist Claudio Radenti’s knowledge, experience and skill. As well as scoring consistently highly on a sensory level by tasters (tasting ‘blind’), testing analysis reveals that Freycinet Pinot has a near perfect tannin score, and that’s a combination of both fruit and oak tannin. Basically Freycinet Pinot is as technically brilliant as we pleasure-driven tasters think it is.” - Michele Round, Pinot Shop Launceston
