Variety Pinot Noir
BlendPercent 100% Pinot Noir

It is only a small amount - 2.3 tons, which we fermented in a small open top tank. We punched down twice a day as we were careful not to over extract the wine. Bottelary with its low potential granite soils always give low yield with high intensity fruit. The result is a darker than normal Pinot Noir (even with us only wetting the cap twice a day) It is pressed off after 10 days and taken back to old barrels for 15 months.
So the wine spends a total of 18 months in oak. We usually sell the Pinot Noir grapes, or as bulk wine, but this year - we were so impressed with the quality - we decided to bottle it - hope you like it!

Harvest We picked the grapes at 24 Balling - nice dark ripe fruit.
Vineyard Vines planted in weathered granite soil. Yield of 4-6 tons per hectare.
