MAD Pinot Noir 2004


MAD pinot noir is the brain child of 3 buddies of mine who share a passion for wine. Together with Sandro Mosele of Kooyong fame, they have fashioned a wine from pinot fruit harvested from the Ferrous vineyard. Ferrous is one of three single-vineyard designated plots of pinot noir owned by Kooyong Estate. The other two being, Meres and Haven, each of which demonstrates a distinctive "terroir".

T-notes > Youthful looking ruby red. The nose > iron ore, minerals, and slate with a touch of strawberry cheesecake. The palate > cool, perfumed red fruit flavors with a hint of spice. Elegant and very nicely balanced.

Limited availability @ Auric Pacific Fine Wines t 65-6291-1947

Hey, you beat me to this! Is this more interesting than the single vineyard Kooyongs?

If memory serves me correctly, MAD is quite similar to the Ferrous offering from Kooyong. Maybe Mr Tan can weigh in on this one?
