Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak of little places, husbanded to artisanal winemaking practices, the most wonderful expressions of Mornington...

Of great interest to Knappstein is the spread of ripening between newer clones Pinot Noir, 777, 114 & 115, as opposed to the established MV6, D4V2 and D5V12. The newer clones ripen earlier and are better suited to the cooler, higher aspects of Adelaide Hills. The Knappstein team work closely with growers to produce moderate yields of superior quality fruit, well exposed to sunlight for optimal development of colour, flavour and tannins. The Sabre is made in small batches, all parcels are cold soaked and hand plunged in traditional open fermenters, treated to full malolactic and ten months maturation in a mix of seasoned and new French oak barriques, followed by a minimal filtration.
Scarlet purple colour. A substantive nose of ripe red berry fragrances, garden vegetable, barnyard and game. An opulent palate of earthy dark fruit flavours, currants and black cherry, tomato leaf and piquant bucolic characters, supported by a fine length of firm yet malleable tannins, sheathed within a an inseparable frame of sassafras oak, all providing balance and structure.
