Cowley Family Vineyard is located in the Ben Morven foothills of Marlborough. It’s a magnificent, sweeping site, divided into a large number of sub-plots and nurtured meticulously (and organically) by Ben Cowley. Corofin’s fruit comes from the main slopes, planted at a density of 3,800 vines per hectare on clay-rich soils.
Corofin’s 2016 from this site is darker and inkier than the Settlement, but it lacks nothing in both energy and lift. Expect dark cherry and iodine scented fruit and a savoury palate with fine tannins.
