Description

Tasting Notes:

The nose displays aromas of raspberry and herbs with an attractive earthiness. The palate shows red berries, pomegranate and some lovely forest floor characters. A fine tannin profile and bright natural acid lift provide great depth and structure to the plate. The beautiful acidity suggests this.

 

Winemaking:

The best Pinot Noir block is isolated early in the growing season and managed accordingly with the aim of producing our most premium pinot noir. Fruit is hand-picked in the cool of the morning. The fruit is then separated for two individual ferments, whole bunch and whole berry (de-stemmed). Fermentation is carried out by wild yeasts with only the occasional pump over. The whole berry ferment accounts for 60% of the final blend and the whole bunch 40% of the blend. The whole berry component provides a purity of fruit whilst the whole bunch component adds complexity and lovely tight tannin structure to the final wine. After fermentation, the wines are pressed and then aged in 4-7 year old French barriques.
