Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir. The challenging terraces which spiral around the fractious knolls of Amisfield Vineyard, sire a sensational range of wines defined by their affable excellence, sound structure and..

Somewhere near the Seaview end of McLaren Vale's Chapel Hill Road, a perfunctory passerine perched her pincers astride a pair of power poles and saw herself alit. Down she went amongst the dry grown branches of an old Grenache vineyard, setting the valuable veterans ablaze. The scorched site eventually came to the attention of a winemaking trio, the Messrs Leske, Tynan & Cooke, Masters of Wine and a venerable vintner, all driven by a consuming passion to make greater Grenache. Thistledown vintage very small amounts of the most extraordinary Grenache.

Major Sir Thomas Mitchell left more than just an invaluable bequeth of our nation's most detailed frontier maps. Mitchell distinguished himself in Wellington's army during the Napoleonic wars in the renowned 95th Baker Rifles. A gifted draftsman, he found his way to the nascent colonies of Australia, where his acumen at mapmaking won him the office of Surveyor General. During one of Mitchell's historical expeditions, he charted the fertile lands around Victoria's Goulburn Valley, establishing the colonial fruitgrowing township of Mitchell's Town.

Kooyong Estate Kooyong Meres Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Mornington Victoria
Kooyong Estate is located at Tuerong and focuses on growing a small range of Burgundesque varietal clones. There are five distinct vineyards of which three are planted to Pinot Noir, the fastidiously husbanded blocks produce stately wines. Meres is a small, single hectare block planted to a gentle north facing slope, the most exposed parcel of Kooyong's Pinot Noir, a place of low vigor and restricted yields. The frugal loam over clay soils produce highly aromatic, beautifully perfumed grapes of velvet tannins and sound structure.

The cultural practices of Kooyong respect and nurture the inherent character of each block. All vines are hand cane pruned, if the season is showing higher yields, bunches are thinned to focus the intensity of flavour in remaining clusters. All grapes are hand picked and the vinification is nothing short of meticulous. Parcels of destemmed grapes and whole bunches are vinified through the action of spontaneous, ambient yeasts in a mix of concrete vats and fermenters for eighteen days. Upon completion, batches are pressed and racked into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for malolactic and fourteen months maturation, bottled unfiltered and unfined.
