Grapes were harvested at the end of February from vines planted in 2009 and 2011. Inoculated with selected yeast strains from Burgundy, France. Primary fermentation in open fermenters with manual punch-downs at 22-28°C. After 8 days skin contact; pressed directly to foudre, 3rd-fill, and one new 300-litre French oak barrel where malolactic fermentation completed naturally. Matured for 10 months in French oak. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: A fresh Pinot Noir with a bouquet of red cherry and raspberry. Subtle hints of pine needle cedar.

Palate: Bright red fruit on entry, complimented with a light elegant body structure and hints of earthy notes on the mid-palate.

Finish: Soft with lingering mix of mushrooms and raspberries. Delivering an umami effect on finish.
