The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most profoundly structured, intensely focused, yet softly spoken range of wines. Powerful yet disciplined Cabernet, generously proportioned Malbec, august Chardonnay and mesmerising Riesling, all representing essential drinking and salient value, for every learned west coast gourmande in the..

After founding Mornington's eminent Moorooduc Estate and decades crafting the most memorable vintages for Mornington's leading brands, Richard McIntyre established a tiny, single hectare vineyard, on a prominent, high elevation site at Arthur's Seat, with a view to producing limited yields of the most exquisite small batch wines. The techniques of choice are wild yeast ferments, minimal intervention and good French oak, with a nod to traditional Burgundian practices, which allow the wines to speak of provenance, express their specificity of clone and articulate their sense of place. There's not much Bellingham made but every bottle passes through the hands of a team member who has been involved with the vintage since pruning and budburst.

Kooyong Estate Kooyong Haven Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Mornington Victoria
The wines of Kooyong aim to express their terroir, an integration of geology, soils and mesoclimates of the various sites within the vineyard and the weather of the growing season, to articulate the unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice. The most sheltered block of Pinot Noir is called Haven, its coddled vines yield grapes of enticing purple jube opulence, completely destemmed for wild indigenous yeast vinification and a year's maturation in French oak barriques, its velvet richness and lushness supported by firm underlying tannin structure.
Deep garnet hues. Plethora of black and red fruit bouquets, spicy notes of cardamon, nettle and dried orange. A palate of great depth and boldness, juicy black cherry flavours and fine structural elements supported by tight tannin grip, fleshyness and the complexity of farmyard fruit, Haven lingers long on the finish to lasting impressions of sen-sen licorice, rhubarb and stalk.
