Purity and persistence with crystalline acidity and sensational length. Glimmering notes of toasted hazelnuts, nashi pear, lime sorbet, and sea spray on the nose with subtle smoke, chalk, green apple, and yellow stone fruits persisting on the palate. It’s ethereal and lean with a more than optimistic future ahead. It’s a certain prodigy in the making.
"Cooinda Vale Vineyard was established in 1985 by Pooley’s founders, Margaret and Dennis Pooley. Sitting between 80-100m above sea level, the vineyard is tucked away in a nook of hills North of Campania making it much more protected from prevailing weather conditions. Being more continental it also experiences greater extremes in temperatures bringing more frequent frosts, snow and heat waves. The iron lacking grey brown sandy loam over clay subsoils at this site tend to bring a moderate level of struggle to the vines by restricting deep root growth and water accessibility but in turn creates a wine that is more delicate and finer."
