The Estate Pinot Noir is a blend of small mature plots (vine age averages 20+ years). Each site is vinified and matured  separately before final blending.

 

Fruit was hand harvested and sorted. A combination of 80% whole berry and 20% whole bunch is tipped into open fermenters. 18-22 days of maceration and fermentation with wild yeast. Pressed, settled overnight and then filled to barrel by gravity. Allowed to mature for 8 months at 16°C in 225L French casks.

 

Medium red in colour. Bright red fruits, lovely Pinot aromatics, complex, and spicy. Gentle tannins, plump, textural, elegant with fine balancing acidity.
