2022 WKR Pinot Noir 
The first Single Vineyard release from the White Kangaroo Road Vineyard which was purchased in 2021. The vineyard was planted in 2000 to UC Davis Pinot Noir clones G5V15 (60 %) and D5V12 (40 %) on on own roots on sandy loams over clay. No herbicide was used for this vintage and the yield was 3 t/ha. Fermented with 20 % whole bunches and matured for 11 months in new Cavin French oak barriques (60 %) and one concrete tulip (40 %). Bottled filtered, un-fined. 210 dozen made.
There’s a notable brightness at play, with red fruits and florals meshed with subtly savoury spice notes. Sour cherries, tart raspberries, pomegranate, white pepper on fresh strawberry, with hints of rose petal, rhubarb, bergamot tea and a dusting of ground cassia. Youthful, the tannins are tight knit, fine but grippy, showing a subtle assertiveness allied with pleasingly cool acidity, an architecture that’s made to carry the flavours as they unfurl and complex with time. Overall, the feel has a sharp spotlight on fruit and place, with the winemaking hiding quietly in the wings, supporting, not intruding. With air, the wine fleshes out, with nervier elements fleshing up, tannins plumping, and the subtly fragrant kick of whole bunch lifting out spicier notes to frame the fruit. Anna Pooley

Australia — Vintage and Vine

Bubb + Pooley is an exciting new wine venture created by the husband and wife winemaking team of Justin Bubb and Anna Pooley. The first releases from the 2021 vintage were produced from purchased fruit sourced from carefully selected vineyards in the Coal River Valley and the East Coast of Tasmania.

‘We have each been making wine across the globe for over 20 years. After living and working in Tasmania and making wine for a number of premium vineyards throughout the state, the time has come for us to release our own wines. We continue to work with our existing clients, so at this point in time you might say it’s a ‘side hustle’.

It's an opportunity to work with some exceptional vineyards and vignerons across the state and produce wines that connect with our philosophy of making wine from the ground up. All of our decisions are focussed on how we can do things better in order to minimise our impact on the environment. Sustainability threads through and underpins our approach to everything we do.

The use of concrete vessels is no experiment either - it’s a style of vessel that has been traditionally used for centuries in the Old World. We have chosen each shape specifically to enhance the texture of the varietal within them and these beautiful, hand crafted vessels will last lifetimes.’ Justin Bubb and Anna Pooley, January 2022.

For the 2022 vintage and beyond, Justin and Anna have some exciting plans in the pipeline to consolidate their fruit sourcing, which will also give them more control over vineyard management. Watch this space for further developments!
