The 2013 Ferrous shows complex and intriguing notes of raspberry, cherry and tarry earth. Focused and persistent, the cool, finely textured palate is typical of the block with blue fruit, blood orange and iron flavours. With a long, balanced, mineral finish, this, like all vintages of this wine, demands time in the cellar.14.0% alc.

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2016 Campbell Mattinson Promises a big story from the outset, all showy oak and velvety fruit, but once the opening number has died down a web of finer details is revealed, and there the mesmerising begins. This needs a little time but it has tight sleeves and all the right cards tucked therein. Plums, cherries, steel, spice, polished cedarwood and subtle foresty elements. It's long, fine and more simply, fantastic to spend time with. Would be a welcome guest at dinner anytime. 96 points

The Australian Wine Annual 2016 Jeremy Oliver A complete, complex cellaring pinot whose smoky but slightly closed bouquet of black and red cherries is lifted by alluring aromas of red and blue flowers. It’s long and supple, with a gentle but emphatic core of blue and red fruits extending long and stylish over a fine mineral and slatey spine towards a lingering and savoury finish of smoky oak, vibrant fruit, dried herbal notes and licorice. 95 points

Degustation for Dignity Event, 23rd September 2016 Matthew Jukes Kooyong’s wines are all marked by serenity and calm. They have always possessed these qualities and this is thanks to their special terroir and also their exquisite confidence in their amazing raw materials. Ferrous is always my favourite of the single vineyard Pinots and in 2013 is a masterful creation. Long, lithe, allenveloping and immensely satisfying – it is the epitome of the Pinot Noir grape variety while never overstepping the mark as so many Kiwi, Californian and South African versions tend to do. Even Burgundy is guilty of pushing their grapes hard to perform, while Kooyong’s impressive portfolio seems effortless, centred and composed. While Ferrous looks stunning now, this is also a wine which will evolve over another five years, so don’t rush to finish your hoard because there is more evolution to come. WBM, January/February 2016

Tyson Stelzer Beautifully poised black cherry and strawberry fruit of juicy, enticing allure, is impeccably framed in fine-grained, wellstructured tannins. It’s intricately crafted, capturing silky, seductive grace and deep, penetrating, enduring fruit depth, lingering with outstanding persistence. Benchmark. 96 points
