Colour Light Red
Nose Vibrant red cherry and strawberry aromas hit the nose with soft notes of savoury herbs.
Palate The palate carries the vibrancy of the nose, showing red and black cherry that subsides into an earthy spice. Supportive acid keeps the palate fresh and add structure. Slightly savory through the finish with low levels of smooth tannin and a lingering note of sour cherry.

Cellaring 5-10 Years

Pooley Wines
Pooley Wines was established in 1985 when the late Denis and Margaret Pooley planted ten rows of Riesling and seven rows of Pinot Noir on their 16-hectare farm at Cooinda Vale in the Coal River Valley in southern Tasmania.

Today, after more than 20 years of producing premium quality cool-climate wines, and having been awarded numerous trophies and medals at prestigious wine shows, the Pooley family has established a second vineyard in the Coal River Valley at Richmond.
Coal River
The Coal River Valley wine region lies in the south of Tasmania, an easy 15 minutes drive outside of Hobart. It's the apple isle's fastest growing wine region, with almost a fifth of all Tasmanian wines grown there. The region is known for producing superior wines grown over some of the most fertile soil around.

The elements of rainfall, sunshine hours, number of rain days, temperature and overall humidity coalesce and culminate in cool climate conditions ideally suited to growing particular varietals. Predominantly in the reds, the region, as with much of Tasmania has an affinity for making top Pinot Noir however Cabernet, Merlot and some superb Shiraz have been known to emerge from the Coal River Valley too. In the whites, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc lead the charge with lesser amounts of Gewurztraminer grown there too. The dense, Pinot Noirs produced in the Coal River Valley region typically have more weight than their New Zealand counterparts with distinct savory notes not unlike the great red Burgundies. They've enamored many a visitor and will continue to do so as premium winemakers flock to the region.

From estate vineyards and one other Coal Valley vineyard, hand-picked, with some whole bunches in the ferment, matured in French oak. Rich, vital dark cherry/berry fruits are perfectly balanced by subliminal spicy/savoury/spicy notes all adding to a supple, delicious pinot.
