Food Pairings for Philip Shaw Pinot Noir Orange the Wire Walker
Philip Shaw purchased the land for his Koomooloo vineyard in June 1988. In close proximity to the region’s highest peak, Mt Canobolas, Koomooloo vineyard rises to an altitude of 900M with red loam soils over limestone. Koomooloo is a unique hand kept vineyard with a routine of hand pruning, shoot thinning, leaf plucking, crop thinning, and hand picking happening in multiples if needed. Pinot Noir is relatively new and untested in the Orange region, though the variety should be ideally suited with very similar climatic data and soils too Burgundy; the original home of Pinot Noir. Koomooloo vineyard pinot was originally planted in 1990 on a southerly aspect. This ensured an elegant, intense varietal style of wine. This wine has a great personality with light medium body and pure varietal fruit characters.
