Kooyong Meres Pinot Noir 2015

Kooyong's 'Meres' vineyard is planted almost entirely to Pinot Noir and takes its name from the dams which flank the vineyard on all sides. This gently sloping block is quite exposed and confers reduced vigour and yield. The soil also shows a marked difference to the other Pinot Noir vineyards, having a less loamy topsoil, higher clay content in the subsoil and the least prevalence of sandstone pebbles. The combination of the soils, exposure and low vigour produces Pinot Noirs of high aromaticity and perfume, red fruits, a more feminine structure and sometimes a slightly lighter colour than the other Kooyong single site Pinot Noirs. Although it will improve very well with age, 'Meres' Pinot Noir is typically the most approachable of the three styles in its youth.

Bright blood-maroon colour. Possibly a little more masculine than other recent releases of this wine, this has the pretty, aromatic red fruits of Meres but with an unusual depth and meaty complexity. Dusty herbs and focussed red fruits frame the palate and are carried by the site’s classic silkiness to length.
