The Heathcote Wineworks were one of the first commercial wineries in central Victoria. Prominently placed along Heathcote's main boulevard, established by Thomas Craven in 1854 to cater for the huge influx of gold miners seeking their fortune. Thomas Craven was a purveyor of spirits and wine, he traded in gold, providing a lifeline to local prospectors. An entrepreneurial type, he also operated a coach service from stables behind the cellar door, despatching supplies and delivering mail around the central Victorian goldfields. The legacy endures within a measured range of small batch Shiraz, crafted to traditional techniques and fashioned for timeless excellence. Enthusiasts of grand old brands with a..

At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty Mediterranean braises or char grilled rib...

Kooyong Estate Kooyong Ferrous Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Mornington Victoria
Planted exclusively to Pinot Noir, Kooyong Estate's Ferrous Vineyard lies atop sandstones which are encrusted with iron oxide, giving them a rusty appearance and inspiring the Ferrous moniker. Unique soils impart the intriguing characters of hot wet stone and rusty outback to the exquisitely compex nose. The scant 1.74 hectares of Ferrous Block yield an extremely limited release, single vineyard wine, arguably Mornington's flagship Pinot Noir.
Ferrous Vineyard is less protected from the northerly winds, and the soil extremely unforgiving, resulting in greater stress being placed upon the vines. The vines here tend to run out of available water much sooner than in most parts of Mornington. The resulting wine is more masculine in nature, the tannins have more presence and the colour is richer. All grapes are picked by hand and destemmed alongside a portion of whole bunches, into large oak foudres for three weeks of ferment without any added yeasts. A course of wild malolactic in barrel is followed by seventeen months maturation in French oak, a third of which are new, to be bottled without any fining or filtration. Alcohol 13.5%
Dark blood maroon colour. Aromas of crushed ironstone, pink grapefruit, fresh beetroot, wild/ sour cherry and a forest floor. Foamy strawberry and strawberry shortcake, tart black cherries, sleek texture, creamy vanillin note and oak seamlessly integrated, a density of fruit flavours, an utterly pure, savoury line, pert acidity and assertive tannin propel the palate to length.
