Kooyong Massale Pinot Noir 2016
Pinot Noir »
Colour: Vibrant Ruby Red
Bouquet: Opulent with juicy cherry and raspberry perfumed notes and a supporting minerality
Palate: A finely structured palate supported by persistent acidity and tannin. This wine shows richness and depth supported by juicy fruits including raspberry and cherry. It has a good linear palate and is supported with subtle oak. An elegant wine which is both approachable when young, and showing potential for further improvement with age.
Cellaring: With careful cellaring, this wine has good potential for ageing.
Generous, plump and juicy,this fresh and forward young pinot has a floral perfume and a meaty, slightly musk expression of sweet black and red cherries, plums and dark berries backed by earthy notes and chocolate oak. Luscious, mouthfilling and well-ripened, with a firmish, pliant undercarriage and a drying,s savoury finish, it's approachable and ready to drink now but will also improve over a moderate distance in the cellar.(17.5/91, YTD 2010-2013+) Jeremy Oliver
