2020 Kooyong Estate Pinot Noir
Region: Mornington Peninsula, Victoria (Australia)
Winemaker: Glen Hayley
Winery Established Date: 1996
The fruit was fermented in a combination of large-format oak foudre (20-120 hectolitres oak vessels), large-format concrete tanks and stainless-steel tanks. Fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts, included a proportion of whole bunches and lasted 16 to 18 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques (20% of which is new) and puncheons and underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The maturation period was 12 months. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
Displaying bright fruit notes more in the red spectrum, the nose opens with raspberry and strawberry, complemented by orange peel and spice notes of cassia and clove. A great example of Mornington Pinot Noir. Fruity and easy drinking, with strawberry flavours on the nose and palate, but also followed spicy and complex. Fine tannins and medium acidity, which make this wine very food friendly.
