Winemaker's Notes: "The 2014 Massale reveals wild raspberry and black cherry aromas along with earthy notes of cardamom and undergrowth. The palate has lovely control and flow, from its core of fleshy red fruit through to the finish that is tightly wound with dark, spicy tannin. The 2014 Kooyong Massale is an estate blend of Pinot Noir parcels from the Kooyong and Ballewindi vineyards. The parcels in this wine represent 14.05 hectares. It is fermented, without yeast inoculation, in open vats for 19 to 21 days, with a small percentage of whole bunches included. The malolactic conversion is also indigenous. A maturation period of 10 months in French oak barriques, 15% new, is followed by 4 months in large format foudres." 92 points Wine Front: "Perfect drinkability. Thinking person’s sex symbol. Complex but juicy and accessible. Deep thoughts, open flavours. Sweet cherry, rhubarb, sourness, undergrowth, spice. Slip of dry tannin. Flavours feel water-rather than alcohol-based. Just the ticket."
