PALATE

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

VINTAGE

A perfect late Spring and early Summer resulted in the best flowering and fruit set we have seen for many years. It was followed by a dry and mild ripening period. The berries show intense perfume and great flavour which has produced exceptionally balanced 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 (25% new) for malolactic fermentation and maturation (10 months). The wine was given one racking off gross lees in the late winter and bottled in February 2019.
