Kooyong 'Meres' Pinot Noir 2015
The Meres vineyard is planted entirely to Pinot Noir, barring a tiny quarter acre annexe planted to Pinot Gris. Located along the eastern boundary of Kooyong, the name Meres alludes to water bodies - in this case the dams which flank the block 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 is typically the most approachable of the three when young.
The Wine Front – Perfumed, spicy, liquorice root and amaro herbs, succulent red fruits. It’s medium bodied, silky and fine, with a deep sweep of fine pumice stone tannin, cool minerally acidity, delicious flavour, and that tasty Campari edge pushing through the finish. Here’s a lovely wine, and pretty much, it feels at ease with itself and ready to drink from any time…now.
In a mixed or straight case: $71.24
