A delicate palate of strawberries & cream with a dry finish.
Rain events did create moderate disease pressure during the growing season but were often followed by prolonged periods of mild and dry weather there was little disease occurrence. Temperatures were generally moderate with higher-than-average low temperatures but no hot weather and certainly no heat waves. We meandered through harvest at a gentle pace.
The Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir were hand-harvested separately at ideal ripeness for generous fruit flavour, but still delicate structure. Each batch was whole bunch pressed very gradually to extract a beautiful pale red juice with low tannin. The Pinots were blended as juice after being settled overnight, and the clear juice was fermented cool in stainless steel tank to dryness. The wine was clarified and bottled in late June, 2021.
