THE HARVEST

The dry summer season resulted in healthy bunches with smaller berries of concentrated juice.

It was the maiden vintage for this block of Pinot Noir and it certainly did not disappoint.

IN THE CELLAR

The grapes were whole bunch pressed in order to minimize tannins and maintain fruit and

elegance in the wine. Only the first half of pressed juice are used for the final product to

minimize the extraction of colour.
