Description

Aroma: Delicate floral notes mingle with raspberry, olive and a touch of wood smoke.

Palate: The structure is fine grained and elegant, with subtle power. Complex flavours of savoury, red fruits and potpourri.

With an approachable structure and layers of flavour, we expect this Pinot Noir to be a good cellaring proposition for at least 3 - 5 years with further complexities to evolve after that.

Winemaking

All fruit was handpicked and fermented in small open vats. Around 17% of the fruit was left as whole clusters, the rest destemmed. Fermentation occurred naturally after which the wine was drained to oak barrels to age for 11 months. Barrels and blocks were then selected for the final blend and rested in tank for several months prior to bottling.

Vineyard

Two Cane vertical shoot positioning, shoot and bunch thinning to restrict yield.
