New vintage release
A text-book vintage with cool and dry conditions which allowed us to keep fruit on the vines for longer to give greater complexity and flavour. This wine is produced from 16 year old Estate fruit, grown on a warmer western slope at 350m altitude. The rows run East West, preventing sunburn from late afternoon sun. We have been restoring organic matter to build up the top soil as it is very shallow. The top soil lies over layers of acidic clay and broken shale.
Five Pinot clones (predominantly MV6), hand picked into small baskets followed by cold soak pre-ferment to enhance the extraction of colour and aromatics. After fermentation the skins are pressed out using our traditional basket press and then the wine aged in French oak barriques for 10 months (25% new oak). After this period, we blend our finest parcels and hand bottle on-site.
