Kooyong Haven Pinot Noir

Kooyong has been more serious than most in identifying the specifics of its vineyards and developing distinctive profiles for its single vineyard wines. The Haven vineyard is protected from wind and has relatively fertile soil.

This translates directly into the tasting profile of the 2010 Kooyong Haven Pinot Noir. The bouquet is floral and aromatic, with aromas of violets jumping out of the glass. On the palate, the wine is pure and lush. Elegant red cherry flavours dominate, but there is an immediate complexity with underlying savoury flavours. This is an elegant wine, but unfortunately it falls off a bit at the finish.

Kooyong used to have detailed vineyard information on the label. Unfortunately, it is no longer there with this vintage.

Score: 92/+
