PALATE

This elegant yet complex pinot noir shows hints of ripe red fruits & dried spice with a fine backbone of soft tannins. The finish is silky with a superb mid palate.

VINTAGE

Budburst was early this year which resulted in flowering with good fruit set. The warm ripening period saw harvest commence a week sooner than normal. Yields were reported as high – average with fine acidity retention and excellent balanced flavours.

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 21 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 2020.
