2022 Josh Cooper Doug's Vineyard Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir 750Ml BottleRegular price $75.00
Planted 20 years ago, Doug’s Vineyard is situated on the outskirts of the township of Romsey in the Macedon Ranges. A cool hamlet, the vines sit at around 500m altitude, atop a North and North East facing hillside on red rocky volcanic basalt soil, moderating vigour and providing amazing intensity to the fruit, ripening small, beautifully formed clusters at low sugar levels. Hand harvested with 20% whole bunch they then spend 12 months in oak on lees, followed by four months in stainless steel on fine lees before racking and bottling.
"Pale ruby. Classical and very typical of Doug’s Vineyard, a very elegant and ethereal release. Fragrant and subtle with raspberry, and red cherry fruits complexed by sous bois and the typical exotic spice of Doug’s Vineyard. Structured by silky tannin and fresh acidity and offering great charm in its youthful vigour, medium term aging or decanting will greatly reward." - Joshua Cooper
