Tasting Notes:

Shy notes of forest floor, autumn leaves and mushroom with red berry fruit whiffs and some spice. The palate is deceptively light-bodied and soft on entry - with reticient bright red berry flavours. Then the wine reveals its firm core of dark, nuanced brambles and blackcurrant with smoky oak flavours. Pronounced but gentle grip of tannin from oak which is well integrated. Ephemeral, elegant and lithe with a long, refined tail.

This vineyard was picked in 2 stages, the bottom part of the vineyard separate to the top part. The reason is a slight difference in ripening and different clones, each contributing to a range of flavours and structure. Grapes were hand-picked into small lug-boxes in the early morning and transported to the cellar in refrigerated trucks.

These grapes were worked very gently during fermentation and after fermentation the wine was aged in old 225ℓ French oak barrels for 10 months before being bottled. Bottle-aged for 2 years.

All the fruit was de-stemmed and then fermented in old wooden tanks and small 1 ton open top stainless steel tanks.

Food pairing

Pinot noir is one of the few varietals that pairs well with either a delicate, poached salmon or a rich, braised duck
