2012 Kooyong Ferrous Mornington Peninsula Australia Pinot Noir

13.5% alc.. Port Phillip Estate was established in 1995 by Chris and Gail Aylward. It’s Kooyong wines come exclusively from the estate’s 52 acres of Pinot Noir (8 clones) and 27 acres of Chardonnay (10 clones). The Pinot Noir offerings include an Estate wine, and three single vineyard bottlings: Ferrous, Haven and Meres. The winemaker is Sandro Mosele. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The most distinctive wine in the lineup with aromas of dark cherry pie glaze, forest floor and oak. The mid weight flavors of very ripe dark cherry and purple stone fruits are clothed in oak, with an underpinning of iron-driven minerality. The wine sports admirable elegance with well proportioned dry tannins and some finishing fruit goodness. Score: 89. Reviewed September 14, 2014
