Single vineyard Estate Grown at an elevation of 650 m. The 2018 vintage struck an optimal balance between flavour, ripeness and acidity producing a Pinot Noir showing finesse and varietal characters.
Hand harvested fruit was destemmed then cold soaked for 3 days before being inoculated. The wine was hand plunged and left on skins for 30 days for tannin development. A full malolactic fermentation was completed with maturation in French oak barriques (20% new) for 11 months prior to bottling.
The 2018 Pinot Noir is lifted and aromatic. Cherry, plum, dried herbs and oak spice show through on the nose. The palate is medium bodied with great acidity and supple tannins. This wine carries through to a long rich, velvety finish.
