PALATE

A palate of dark cherries that linger into a spicy richness, the finish is long and balanced with silky tannins.

VINTAGE

2015 – Was a mild growing season, dry & cool with an excellent sunny & warm January, February & March. Intensely perfumed and balanced grapes will result in some super wines.

WINEMAKING

The Pinot Noir was handpicked, then 100% destemmed, with minimal crushing, into small open fermenters, where a natural fermentation commenced after a few days, and the total maceration was for 16 days. The wine was pressed and settled overnight before transfer to barrels (30% new) for malolactic fermentation and maturation (10 months). The wine was given one racking off gross lees in the winter, and bottled in December 2015.
