Kooyong Meres Pinot Noir
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 Kooyong 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.
Shy at first, the 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.
