Kooyong Estate Pinot Noir 2016 (Mornington Peninsula, Victoria) "...earth, spice, tangello..."
"The Estate release is always a good representation of where Kooyong pinot noir is at – in a given season. There’s plenty of meat on this wine’s bones. It’s a spicy, stewy, chewy pinot noir with macerated cherry, woodsy spice, plum and vanilla flavours rolling through the palate. Weight, power, perfume and shape are all on the positive side of the ledger; finesse perhaps less so. Needless to say, pure drinking enjoyment can easily be found here." - 92 Points, The Winefront
"Cherry pith and satsuma plum meander along a twine of vanillin oak, clove-doused tannins and maritime acidity, expansive and meandering." - 93 Points - Ned Goodwin MW, Halliday's Wine Companion
