Ageing potential 10+ years


All clones were small batch-fermented and aged separately. Fruit was hand-picked, hand-sorted and destemmed to multiple small open vats. Stalks were added back to several parcels for extra complexity with a couple of designated small vats of 100% whole bunch. A mix of natural fermentation and inoculated yeasts.

Cuvaison length ranging from 2 to 3 weeks on skins. Vats hand- plunged or pumped-over a maximum of once per day.

Winemaker’s notes
Exhibiting an intense Pinosity with unfurling power, charm and complexity from a classically cool and extended vintage. This medium-bodied yet bold Pinot Noir leads with beguiling aromas of black cherry, raspberry, rhubarb, sarsparilla, kirsch and dark
chocolate. Supported by savoury characters of porcini broth, wet earth, nutmeg and graphite with underlying stalk-derived herbal notes. Showing a finesse, elegance and slow-build of power, the palate resounds with dark brooding flavours redolent of spice,
sarsparilla and zesty citrus. The weighty yet supple mid-palate is drawn along to the resounding finish by tight lines of natural acidity, integrated oak and lovely medium-chain slow-build tannins.

This wine is vegan friendly.
