Product DescriptionRegion: Mount Gambier Tell me more: Our Winemaker Peter Douglas wouldn’t let us put these 3 barrels of Pinot Noir into our Razortooth Pinot it had to be separated, he said they were too good. The result, a new Koonara Pinot Noir was born. The label design for this wine matches our new Premium Chardonnay Daisies & Dandelions. Winemakers Comments: This Pinot Noir spent 6 months in a mix of Taransaud and Mercurey which are high-quality French Oak barrels. French Oak gives a more complex flavour spectrum, with more floral notes. Because Pinot Noir is a more delicate wine, oxygen is absolutely our enemy with this wine, so more oak in a shorter period so we can get it into the bottle ASAP, and allow complexity to develop in the bottle.

Cool growing conditions, rocky minerally soils, and low-yielding vines have helped create a complex bouquet awash with true Pinot characters. It has hints of vanilla and fresh tobacco over spicy cherry notes.
So how do I serve it?
The Pinot Noir is a lighter-bodied red, and is best served at 16°C
What pairs well with this?
It would be remiss of me not to mention the love affair Pinot Noir has with Duck but it also goes really well with both white meats and lighter foods and earthy gamey flavoured foods too.
How long will it last?
Pinot Noir is best drunk young, but this one will cellar well until 2028.
Also good to know:
- This wine is Vegan friendly
- Has low levels of residual sugar
- Below organic levels of sulphur
