Kooyong Ferrous Pinot Noir 2016


'Always my favourite pinot of the stable for structural reasons alone: the tannins are earthy and ferric, as the name implies. Nothing gritty, though. A magical carpet to carry and obviate the sweetness of the fruit: bing cherry, blood plum and root spice. A welcome respite. Long, highly complex and flush.' 96 Points.  Ned Goodwin MW

"It really is hard to choose a favourite from among the stellar 2016 single-vineyard pinots from Mornington Peninsula standout Kooyong – but the complex and savoury Ferrous just gets the nod in an all-star cast. The ironstone pebbles in the 20-year-old Tuerong vineyard give the wine terrific architecture with the tannins providing the framework in which quality dark cherry fruit characters and hints of spice lead the way with support from largely aged French oak barriques. The fruit here is beautifully layered with earthiness, structure and length. I’m happy to give this 96/100 and to bet most buyers find it too delicious right now to even think of cellaring it.  96 points"  Winsor Dobbin
