Winemaker: Joshua Cooper

Josh Cooper is setting a cracking pace for the next generation of Victorian winemakers. The lad's got a deft touch with Pinot Noir, using bunches and neutral oak to allow the unique characteristics of each vineyard he works with to shine.
The Ray-Monde vineyard was planted in 1988 in Macedon Ranges. Josh has been working with this fruit for a little while now, helping make the wines for the family that owns it as well as making a small amount of Pinot Noir for himself. It's a lithe, beautiful Pinot Noir full of life and energy, one of his finest red wines to date, no doubt about it.
