Preheat the oven to 230°F/110°C. Prepare a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Mark an 8-inch/20 cm circle on parchment paper and flip the parchment to ensure no marks transfer to the meringue.
To make the meringue, place egg whites in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer at high speed. Gradually add sugar, one spoon at a time, beating until sugar dissolves, and the meringue is stiff, thick, and glossy. Add cornflour and white wine vinegar, and whisk until just combined about 20 to 30 seconds.
Using a large metal spoon, spoon 8 to 10 dollops of meringue close together to form a wreath shape. Place a few drops of blackberry preserves on top of meringue balls and draw the "eight," using the back of a teaspoon. Bake at 230 F/110 C for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 210°F/100°C. Bake for a further 1 hour 15 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow Pavlova to cool, with the door closed, for about 3 to 4 hours.
To decorate Pavlova, beat whipping cream, powdered (icing) sugar, and vanilla until soft peaks form. Place the meringue wreath on a serving platter and top with the whipped cream. Decorate Pavlova with fresh blackberries and kiwifruit stars, and sprinkle with powdered (icing) sugar.
