Joshua Cooper Ray-Monde Vineyard Pinot Noir, Port Phillip, Australia 2020

VINTAGE : 2020

COUNTRY : Australia

REGION/APPELLATION : Central and Western Victoria

VARIETALS : Pinot Noir

Joshua Cooper Wines are produced and bottled in the Macedon Ranges, Victoria, from grapes harvested from a prized selection of Central and Western Victorian vineyards.

Established in 2012 with a single barrel, my wine operation is based around a négocient system, sourcing from sensitive and conscientious growers with great vineyard sites in the Macedon Ranges and across Central and Western Victoria.

With a focus on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon from significant and historic sites, this is an exploration of my surroundings through wine, made without artifice, to be a reflection of place and season.

These grower vineyards are soon to be supplemented by estate grown fruit, with planting commencing 2024 of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir at Stone Hills, Drummond Victoria.

Garnet, and filled with aromas and flavours of black cherry, kirsch, violet, spice, sweet damp earth and peat. Medium-bodied with long, fine, silky tannin, this is a very “gourmand” wine.



South Gisborne, Port Phillip VIC

Pinot Noir

The Ray-Monde Vineyard was established in 1988 by the Lakey family, in South Gisborne at 400m above sea level on the Southern edge of the Macedon Ranges GI, to which it once belonged. The gently North-East facing 5ha of Pinot Noir form a small part of the 230ha grazing farm now managed by John and Tristia Lakey, on which sheep, cattle, chicken and more are reared, with an emphasis on sustainable grazing and re-vegetation.

 A true mixed farm, I’m privileged to be able to purchase its fruit. The vineyard is unique for the area, being planted in gravelly ironstone and basaltic clay soils, with very little top soil and a huge amount of “Bluestone” rock just below the surface. This lean soil together with vine age results in incredibly concentrated grapes, with thick skins and ripe stems even at low sugar levels.
