Bright garnet. The darkest and most approachable of the three 2017 Pinot Noirs, Ray-Monde is filled with the aromas and flavours of black cherry, violet, spice and sweet damp earth. Medium bodied with long, fine, silky tannin it is a very "gourmand" wine. Approachable in youth due to the beautiful balance, the tannic presence and quality suggest it should also age gracefully, gaining additional complexity along the journey. JOSH COOPER

The Wine Front
Whenever I see the name Ray Monde (the vineyard) I always want to push the names together to make a plain old ‘Raymond’ to match up with ‘Doug’s’ in the Joshua Cooper naming stakes. This cuvee always sounds like the posher one you need to fake in a French accent. Which fits, of course. The vineyard is sustainably, regeneratively farmed and by all conversations a remarkable place and site. Such charm and ease here. In the parlance of spin bowling, flight and guile. Lofty, fragrant perfume of rose petals, old spice cupboard, kirsch and warm pebbles. The palate is ethereal, feels kind of transparent but the haul of fine, lacy tannins and lingering cherry juice and brown spice flavours layer in perfectly, long and with assertion. It’s a wine for contemplating and taking slow, has the sense of high pedigree that sits you back a bit from wolfing it down. Texture, beauty, joy, all wrapped up in a red liquid. A compelling release – one of Australia’s best pinot noirs. Rated : 96 Points

Producers notes

My wine operation is based around a negociant system, sourcing grapes locally from sensitive growers, with great vineyard sites in the Heathcote and Macedon Ranges regions. This is an exploration of my surroundings through wine, made without artifice, to be a reflection of its place and season. The first vintage was in 2012, with a single barrel of wine made from fruit my parents grew at Cobaw Ridge vineyard. This has since expanded to a more varied range, including historic styles as well as the more experimental and esoteric. As well as working further with my family, my ambition in the coming years is to transition to vineyard establishment. Supplementing the current fruit with what I’ve grown myself.
