2020 Josh Cooper Doug's Vineyard Pinot Noir
Bit of a staff favourite here at City Wine Shop, Josh was born and raised at Cobaw Ridge winery. He's making engaging, edgy wines - this Pinot Noir is Light on its feet, but still showcasing stunning crunchy red fruit aromas, lifted florals are considering with a solid mineral backbone.
'Doug’s Vineyard is situated on the outskirts of the township of Romsey, in the Macedon Ranges. Owned by the Newnham family it was planted over 20-years-ago to predominantly MV6 and smaller amounts of 114 and 115 clone pinot noir.'
'A cool hamlet, the vines sit at around 1,700 feet altitude, atop a North and North East facing hillside on red rocky volcanic basalt soil, moderating vigor and providing amazing intensity to the fruit, ripening small, beautifully formed clusters at low sugar levels.' - Josh Cooper, Winemaker
