2018 Pinot Noir

Medal One
Medal Two

Bright crimson hue. Violet perfumed nose, mixed cherry fruits with a pinch of aniseed spice. Red cherry fruits explode on the front palate. A silky elegance combined with very fine tannin structure, both grape and oak tannin to produce a medium-bodied yet powerful style, the 2018 delivering a juicy fruit palate; immediately delicious.

The grapes were hand-picked and chilled overnight. Processing the following day along a fruit sorting table and destemmed gently into our signature “tea-chest” small fermenters. Some whole bunches were added to contribute subtle stalk structure and a generous fruit profile. Working of the ferment by gentle hand plunging twice daily contributes to the soft fruit palate along with gentle pressing. Maturation for 10 months in all French barrels with 30% new and the balance older oak.
