Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee.

This is Piper's Brook central, a place of auspicious winegrowing climes, long hours of sunlight and extended ripening seasons, which yield fruit of remarkable succulence, gracious acids and satin tannins.

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.
