Kooyong Ferrous Pinot Noir

The Ferrous is one of Kooyong's premium Pinot Noirs, so I had high expectations when I opened the 2003 Kooyong Ferrous Pinot Noir.

The wine is very savoury, with reasonably good length, but not the fanning out on the back palate I had hoped for. The structure is supported by firm tannins, and the seven years of age are no problem. I am just wondering where the special extra is which would let this wine stand out from the increasing number of good Pinot Noirs in Australia? I could not find it.

Score: 92/+
