Technical Details

This wine is 100% Pinot Noir. The grapes are de-stemmed and then go through cold maceration for 3 days. Fermentation is in small, open top fermenters and the cap is punched down three times a day. After fermentation the wine is carefully pressed off the skins using a basket press. The wine is aged for 9 months in oak (mainly French) . Different batches of Pinot Noir from different plots, are kept separate and are finally blended together before bottling.
