Kooyong Haven Pinot Noir

I cannot say that I am too familiar with the differences and intricacies of the different single vinyeard wines of Kooyong, but I like to drink one occasionally.

This 2006 Kooyong Haven Pinot Noir shows quite a strong red/purple colour. The taste is of dark cherry and secondary flavours of forest floor. I like the purity of this wine as it moves down the palate. The wine is a little bit fleshy and soft for my liking, I would have preferred a bit more acidity, but it has a peacock fan finish of sorts and is a good example of a well made Pinot Noir.

This wine drinks well now, showing good complexity, and will continue to do so for 2-3 years.

Score: 93/+
