Winemakers Comments

A blend of 114, 115 and MV6 Pinot Noir clones, this wine was made using 25% whole bunches. The whole bunch portion underwent 7 days of carbonic maceration before being destemmed and gently macerated for the remainder of its ferment. This process highlights the vibrant fruit flavours from our vineyard, while creating a wine with an elegant tannin structure.

Vintage Description

We were kept on our toes in the vineyard with a wet winter and cool, wet spring featuring late bud burst. This was then followed by a hot and dry summer, where ripening was even but rapid. Close attention to maturity was required to ensure we captured the bright fruit flavours and wonderful natural acidity on offer.
