A wetter than average spring during flowering resulted in a slightly lower average yield. The La Nina weather continued over summer gave rise to slower ripening period than usual. This resulted in a harvest of grapes retaining high level of acidity with good concentration of flavour. The quality & flavour of the grapes remained excellent.
Another cool, low-cropping year produced perfectly ripe, intense Pinot Noir. The grapes were handpicked, then 80% destemmed 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 & 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 & bottled in March 2023.
