Kooyong Estate Kooyong Massale Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Mornington Victoria
The Kooyong Estate wineworks at Tuerong, on Mornington's windswept Peninsula, are fully focused on producing artisanally crafted Pinot Noir, from superior quality fruit grown to closely managed, exceptional vineyard sites.
Massale is an assemblage of Pinot Noir parcels grown to Tuerong and Balnarring estate vineyards. Destemmed grapes and a component of whole bunches are indigenously vinified in open vats for up to three weeks without the introduction of any yeasts. Batches are treated to natural malolactic followed by a year's maturation in French oak barriques and larger format foudres, achieving a wine that's completely approachable in its youth.
A pretty purplish crimson colour. The nose speaks of bright red fruits, raspberries and cherry, then violet florals, dried meadow herbs and hints of cherry pip, oak and botanical spice. The palate is attractively brambly with a core of red fruits, fresh acidity, fine, graphite tannins and a savoury edge which balances the fruit. Massale is an elegant wine which will continue to evolve beautifully.
