Traditional Burgundian techniques and minimal handling has produced a Pinot Noir with an intense bouquet of cherries and plums. Flavours of earth and spice complement a rich silky palate with a purity of fruit and finely integrated tannin structure.
2018 was one of our earliest harvests. Beautifully hot in November, December and January and a following cool February, March allowed the grapes to ripen slowly with great flavours and aromatics. A year that showed the exacting vineyard management qualities and decisional capabilities of an experienced and valued team from our vineyard.
We have ten hectares of Pinot noir planted in 8 different clones. Vines are planted in differing areas of the vineyard to maximise the array of flavours available to us during blending. A clonal selection of Abel, 828 and 667 make up this blend.
100% French oak aged for 11 months with a mixture of selected cooperages of which 40% of the barrels are new.
