  • THE BRIEF
  • Pooley Wines is a five star rated multi award winning Tasmanian family winery located in the heart of the Tasmania’s famous wine producing region, the Coal River Valley.

    Anna Pooley is the talent behind the winemaking, with brother Matt working his magic in the vineyard. It's a team that delivers year on year, and the release of their single vineyard wines is always hotly anticipated.

    This single site Pinot Noir from their 20 year old Cooinda Vale vineyard is an expression of their unique terroir and their passion to capture the vineyard in bottle.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Each of the four blocks at Cooinda Vale were handpicked and hand sorted, then fermented separately. Fruit is destemmed only (no crushing) and inoculated for fermentation. We favour pumping over during fermentation which typically lasts for 10 days and is then followed by a post ferment maceration of 8-10 days. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Brilliant ruby red in colour. Hints of spice sit delicately atop a vibrant and red fruit spectrum. The palate is layered with energetic fruit, minerality, spice and perfectly pitched acidity. Fine tannin provides the foundation for the wine to build over time. A small amount of stems included in the ferments provides another element of structure which bodes well for a long and rewarding life ahead.

    GARY WALSH - THE WINE FRONT


    It’s a very fine wine, and forgive me for saying it, has a distinct echo of Burgundy, albeit many thousands of miles south of that neck of the woods. Dried flowers, almost chamomile, a whiff of soil and spice, red fruits and almond. Medium bodied, deft and sure, with pitch-perfect acidity married to perfectly ripe red fruits, tannin is nutty and saturating, and the finish is cool and long, all that ‘mineral’ stuff, orange peel and perfume playing out to marvellous effect. It may, perhaps, be too subtle for some, but those who seek elegance and poise will be well rewarded.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    Identical vinification to Butcher's Hill, except matured in French barriques (10% new). Full, bright crimson-purple; a fragrant bouquet has nuances of licorice, fruitcake and poached plum, the palate keeping pace with the bouquet, ranging through spice, French oak, dark cherry and fine tannins. Carries its alcohol and plentiful extract without any resistance.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Medium to full red colour with a purple tint. The bouquet is restrained and dark/sweet cherry-ish, with a lacing of fresh herbs as well as bitter herb aperitif. There is charming fruit sweetness and plenty to like. Dark and red cherries.
