This Pinot Noir has plenty of bright red forest berry fruit, blood-plum, forest undergrowth notes and fine herb aromas like shiso and oregano. On the palate, the wine is complex, approachable with subtle tannins, spice and well-integrated oak.

The Pinot Noir is gently hand harvested into small 15kg crates and mostly destemmed into small batch fermenters, 10% whole bunch placed in the bottom of each fermenter. The grapes are plunged by hand or feet, up to twice a day for a gentle and long extraction over two to three weeks. The pinot was pressed into new (30%) French oak barriques (228L) and left in barrel to mature for 11 months. A small dose of sulfur was added at blending prior to bottling. No Added yeast, no enzymes, no fining.
