About This Wine
The Kooyong vineyard is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Tuerong. There are three single vineyard Pinot Noirs each with their own intricacies and personalities; Ferrous, Haven and Meres. Winemaker Glen Hayley has a deep connection with the Kooyong site and it shows; he is in the top 50 for Young Gun of Wine 2021.
Haven is sourced from a 0.6ha block that is the most sheltered of the three single sites. This sheltered spot leads to lush fruit with firm tannic structure. Often a fan favourite.
Haven is handled a little differently to the other two single site Pinots. It was entirely de-stemmed and fermented in large wooden and stainless steel tanks. Pressed to French barriques (of which 22% were new) for 14 months and bottled without fining or filtering.
