PALATE

A delicate wine displaying bright red fruits & savoury elements. The mid palate shows hints of cedar spice & cherries, rounding out with elegant persistence.

VINTAGE

Rain events did create moderate disease pressure during the growing season but were often followed by prolonged periods of mild & dry weather so there was little disease occurrence. Temperatures were generally higher than moderate with higher-than-average low temperatures but no hot weather & certainly no heat waves. We meandered through harvest at a gentle pace.

WINEMAKING

The warmth & sunshine of this site produces pinot noir of exceptional quality, even in a very cool vintage like 2021. The fruit was destemmed & commenced fermentation naturally after four days’ cool maceration. A further two weeks was spent on skins prior to pressing to barrel for malolactic fermentation & maturation. Racked once in Spring and bottled in December 2021.
