Pooley Wines was established in 1985 when the late Denis and Margaret Pooley planted ten rows of Riesling and seven rows of Pinot Noir on their 16-hectare farm at Cooinda Vale in the Coal River Valley in southern Tasmania.

Cooinda Vale Vineyard was established in 1985 by Pooley’s founders, Margaret and Dennis Pooley. Sitting between 80-100m above sea level, the vineyard is tucked away in a nook of hills North of Campania making it much more protected from prevailing weather conditions. Being more continental it also experiences greater extremes in temperatures bringing more frequent frosts, snow and heat waves. The iron lacking grey brown sandy loam over clay subsoils at this site tend to bring a moderate level of struggle to the vines by restricting deep root growth and water accessibility but in turn creates a wine that is more delicate and finer.

The 2021 Jack Denis Pooley Pinot Noir is the 7th release of this flagship wine and showcases the best of Cooinda Vale. The grapes for the Jack Denis Pooley Pinot Noir are always selected from the best parcels of fruit, highlighting the outstanding features of the site. 100% destemmed, with wild fermentation for 18 days with 10 days post ferment maceration. Pressed to French oak barriques for 14 months. 

A symphonic display of perfume and florals with deeply enriching notes of violets, rosemary, cedar and stewed strawberry on the nose. An innate tone of earth, savoury tobacco, fresh leather, and foraged mushrooms follow on the palate. There’s a measured restraint to this wine with a crushed velvet texture, pitch-perfect acidity and endless joy on the finish. This wine will continue to develop with careful cellaring. Drink now til 2040.
