POOLEY COOINDA VALE PINOT NOIR 2020
COAL RIVER, TASMANIA
SPICE FRAGRANT DELICATE
CLASSIC / 750ML
A cool-climate predominately destemmed Pinot Noir grown in Tasmania. The Wine spends over three weeks on skins to gently extract as much out of the skins as possible. A beautiful wine, with high notes of red licorice and cherry fading into gentle stem spice and rosemary.
From the Producer: Cooinda Vale Vineyard was established in 1985 by Pooley’s founders, Margaret and Dennis Pooley. Sitting between 80-100m above sea level, the vineyard is tucked away in a nook of hills North of Campania making it much more protected from prevailing weather conditions. Being more continental it also experiences greater extremes in temperatures bringing more frequent frosts, snow and heat waves. The iron lacking grey brown sandy loam over clay subsoils at this site tend to bring a moderate level of struggle to the vines by restricting deep root growth and water accessibility but in turn creates a wine that is more delicate and finer.
The fruit was hand-harvested then destemmed with the inclusion of 15% whole clusters. Fermentation was for 14 days with a further 10 days of ‘infusion’ (post ferment soak with vessel sealed).A vibrant array of fragrance, both sweet and spiced. Delicate notes of earth, dark cherry and dried herbs on the nose with raspberry liquorice, rosemary and wild strawberries on the palate. True to Cooinda Vale form, this wine exhibits seamlessly integrated tannin and lovely tension.

From the Producer: Our Grande Vintage Bruts are produced in a manner that showcases the vintage they were grown in. Only made in exceptional vintages, they are drier, more refined and complex than our non-vintage brut. are Tasmania’s first and only certified biodynamic vineyard, and have been cultivating our vines using biodynamic methods since 2010. This means that our wines are free of all synthetic treatments, additives and pesticides. Instead, we travel the alternative path, stepping back in time and using cosmic rhythms to ensure soil regeneration as well as effective vine care through all phases of the year’s seasonal cycles. These methods enhance our attention to detail in the vineyard and winery, as we're more alert to the signals of Mother Nature and her messengers. Every season, we're becoming more attuned to the synergies between our varied soil types, their organisms, the local flora and fauna, and of course our vines.
