How it was made

The 2016 Pinot Noir was handpicked and destemmed into 1 tonne fermenters. After a brief cold-soak period the majority was allowed to wild ferment - a small portion was inoculated with Burgundy isolate yeast. After pressing the wine was allowed to mature for 10 months in French oak barrels – 25% new.

This is a Pinot Noir which is approachable now and will benefit from age. Deeply coloured with dark fruits, spice and structure that walks the line between elegance and power.
