K&L Notes

Corofin is an amazing small project run by Mike and Anna Patterson. Their focus is on boutique production, single vineyard/block wines that represent special sites with unique and distinctive characters. They make literally a few barrels of each wine with the utmost care and attention. I was super impressed with the wines on a recent trip to New Zealand. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L NZ Wine Buyer)

    The Cowley vineyard is in the Southern Valleys region of Marlborough, specifically Ben Morvan. These Valleys are where the some of the most interesting Pinots of Marlborough come from. The mix of Greywacke, Loess and clays and the cooler, drier climate give the varietal more depth, texture and complexity. Just one sniff and you can see how special it is; blueberries, strawberries with a floral lift and the most delicate spice and mineral tones. It is a structured wine, think Burgundian, high acid with framing tannins, there is a suppleness but it has a firm hand this is dinner wine or something to put in your cellar for a few years. The long finish plays out with darker red berries and black fruits that dance along with fine dusting minerals and crushed herbs. This is a wine that requires a little more effort on the drinkers side, several hours of decanting, medium term cellaring and appropriate food pairing it is well worth it and the rewards exceed that of and comparably price French wine.
