Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak of little places, husbanded to artisanal winemaking practices, the most wonderful expressions of Mornington...

Lenton Brae Cabernet Merlot CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Petit Verdot Margaret River Western Australia
Named for the Chapel district of Lenton in Nottingham, Brae is Scottish for a small hill, which is what the Lenton Brae vineyard is situated on. Fortuitously placed within the very epicenter for superior Margaret River Cabernet, the site was planted after advisement from the proprietors of nearby Moss Wood, with which it shares a similar terroir and microclime. The inaugural vintage of Cabernet won Lenton Brae a place in the pantheon of great Margaret River estates when it claimed two trophies, including best of show, at the WA winemakers exhibition.

The gravelly loams under the Lenton Brae site at Wilyabrup facilitate water drainage without supporting any excessive vigour. The clay base retains moisture and encourages root penetration. A cepage of roughly equal proportions Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a tot of Petit Verdot. In crafting the wine, an emphasis is placed on minimal tannin extraction to produce a style rich in flavour with a softness to allow the wine to be enjoyed immediately upon release. Vinification techniques such as cooler fermentation temperatures and an earlier removal of juices from seeds and skins have facilitated the construction of a gentle, palatable wine whilst avoiding the extraction of bitter, green tannins.
Bright scarlet colour. Aromatically disposed, fruit cake and spice, brambleberry perfumes, plums and cassis, the lightly floral notes of Petit Verdot. On the palate, the structure and tannin of Cabernet Sauvignon compliments the mid palate sweetness and fleshy mouthfeel of Merlot. Lenton Brae mates beautifully with lamb but would also compliment any red meats.
