PALATE

This complex yet subtle pinot noir shows savoury and red stone fruit flavours with a fine backbone of soft fleshy tannins. The finish is silky with a spicy richness on the superb mid palate.

VINTAGE

The 2017 harvest was relatively late compared to preceding vintages, so picking was during the mild and sunny Autumn.

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 late winter and bottled in December 2017.
