Pooley 2019 Pinot Noirs
Winery : Pooley Wines
Pooley was established in 1985 by Margaret and Jack 'Denis' Pooley at Cooinda Vale in Tasmania's Coal R Valley. The estate is now run by the second and third generation Pooleys.
2019 Pooley Cooinda Vale Pinot Noir: Cooinda Vale is the name of the original vineyard site, established in 1985 on the banks of the Coal River, about six kilometres north of the town of Campania. Michele's notes: Highly aromatic with Kentish cherries, spice, candied orange rind and marzipan. Ultra fine (typically Cooinda Vale), persistent, rich cherry fruit mingles with savoury elements and fine chalky tannins, complex.
2019 Pooley Butcher's Hill Pinot Noir: SOLD OUT! Butcher's Hill is Pooley's newer vineyard site, planted in 2003. It is close to the historic town of Richmond. Michele's notes: As always, a touch more spice and flesh than the Cooinda Vale Pinot. Spice, meat/blood/ferrous with sweet red cherries and chocolate. Full, soft but complex. Exemplary mouthfeel. Impressive from the first sip.
