Kooyong SV Haven Pinot Noir 2016

Haven is heaven in our book! Kooyong SV Pinot Noir is 100% Pinot Noir from a single vineyard.

Transparent dark burgundy colour. A complex and seductive bouquet of deep red fruits and spicy aromas. Fleshy mouthfeel with fine tannins and a bright acidity on the elegant palate. A sweet cherry core with a touch of cranberry and blood plum, surrounded by layers of sandalwood, earth, leather and oak spice. Closes with a well-balanced and long finish.

Sourced from 1.32 ha of 20-year-old vines within the most sheltered of Kooyong’s vineyard sites. The lack of exposure to strong winds allows the vines to keep a rich green canopy until comparatively late in the ripening period. The resulting Haven wines always possess fruit in the more purplish spectrum, with a certain richness and lushness yet a firm underlying tannic structure. The vineyard (6.88 ha in total) is divided into seven different parcels, with the same two parcels historically being selected for this wine.

The bunches are hand harvested and entirely destemmed. Spontaneous fermentation with ambient yeasts took place in large-format concrete and wooden tanks for 19 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques (of which 20% were new) and underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked only once, with the total maturation period lasting 14 months. It was then bottled without fining or filtration.

A marvellous Pinot Noir that will only get more interesting over time.



The Real Review, Wine of the Week, August 2018 – 97 POINTS

 Haven is heaven in my book. The fragrance is seductively spicy and perfumed with many shades of red fruits, resulting in a very complex bouquet. It has a gorgeous core of sweet fruit surrounded by soft, refined tannins. A delicious wine which is true to the style of the Haven single block.

Gourmet Traveller Wine, 100 Top New Releases, Oct/Nov 2018 – 97 POINTS

 This is a beguiling, seductive pinot with a marvellous fragrance and elegant palate. Spicy, floral and cherry-like, it has delicious fruit sweetness in the mouth seamlessly coupled with very fine, soft tannins. A typically gorgeous Haven.

Bright. Zinging. This is the ambassadorial expression of the site-specific pinot noir triumvirate. With a red fruited tang and a blacker fruited brood. Transparent. As a result, though-unlike the danker, corpulent Ferrous-the more delicate fruit is yet to absorb the oak. A bit shins and elbows, this will greatly reward those with patience.


 I have a bit of history of Haven fancying. It’s the wine in this range I’ve bought the most of over the years. This is another good release. Structural and powerful, as is its want, though it feels ready to go at the same time. I’d even suggest, for all its bluster, that it will be at its best in its youth, which is not the impression I have of many 2016 releases of this ilk. It has savoury, soy-like nuances, flashes of herbs and nuts, and weaves black berried fruit through a field of dry, twig-littered tannin. But there’s also a sweetness to the fruit, a silken touch, a fluid momentum that just says Drink Me. I’m not one to argue.


How about a white from KOOYONG?
