  • Other Information:Tasting Note: Made from our finest grapes in exceptional vintages, this is the purest expression of Pinot Noir we can craft. It is savoury and complex, and created with ageing in mind. The supple tannins provide structure for rich and succulent fruit weight, creating a balance between power and elegance. Vintage: The 2014 growing season saw minimal frosts in early spring and perfect conditions for flowering and fruit set. The season continued to be warm and settled until after the new year solstice when temperatures started to cool. This long stable weather pattern allowed for a longer than usual ripening period until the fruit reached optimal ripeness for harvest. Winemaking: All of the fruit for this wine was hand-sorted, destemmed and cooled. After prefermentation cold soak, the juice was warmed slightly to begin fermentation with wild yeast, and the caps hand-plunged daily during this period. The wine was left on skins for 2 weeks of post-ferment maceration, then drained, lightly pressed and transferred to French oak barriques, of which 14% were new. The wine went through natural malolactic fermentation during 18 months maturation in barrel, before it was bottled unfiltered and unfined.
