Kooyong Haven Pinot Noir 2012
Pinot Noir »
Shows the generosity of the 2008 vintage with spice (clove, fennel seed, cinnamon) and red fruit (raspberry, strawberry, and satsuma plum). Although relatively open and expressive for a young Haven, there is a firm core, with plenty of ripe, round tannins. At this stage the tannins are well covered by the fruit, and there is a fleshy opulence that reflects the vintage, but that may well be the exuberance of youth. There are also some savoury elements, with some earth and mineral notes, and the final impressions are of fresh red fruits, aniseed, and sweet spice.
