Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak..

There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention.

The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard.. Sociable soils make for healthy vine»
Coonawarra graziers have access to the finest soils for viticulture. Doug Balnaves was born in the very heart of Coonawarra, quite near the sacred cricket pitch at Penola. An accomplished herdsman and shearer, Balnaves took up the challenge of planting vineyards in 1971. Working under the tutelage of legendary Coonawarra winemaker Bill Redman, Balnaves immersed himself in the culture of the vine, ultimately establishing a grande marque of Coonawarra and securing the inaugural presidency of the Coonawarra Vignerons Association.

The moderate rainfalls at Argiano serve to barely nourish the vines, promoting healthier ripening while achieving greater concentration and flavours in the finished wine. Neighbouring Monte Amiata is one of Tuscany's highest peas, providing shelter for the fruit and protecting the vines from bad weather. Grapes are all hand picked into shallow crates for transport to the wineworks, individually sorted and transferred to vat fermenters. The clear juices are vinified on skins for two or three weeks for optimum extraction. Upon completion of malolactic, Montalcino is matured in a selection of prior use French oak barrels and larger format Slovenian oak casks before bottling the following autumn.
Intense ruby red colour. Peppery, herbal and vanilla nose, black cherry and jam aromas. Medium bodied with good concentration of fruit in the mid palate, elegant and well balanced with captivating flavours of red berries and violet, menthol and earth, all characteristic of Argiano's unique terroir. A generous wine with smooth and velvety tannins that will please all Sangiovese lovers.
