This wine is summer in a bottle with delicate floral aromas and a hint of wild berries on the nose. Then strawberries and cream come through on the palate before moving through to more complex doughy flavours.
Taking a modern approach on tradition, making authentic wine is very important to them, as well as making the best wines possible. They try and pick grapes on ‘fruit’ days in accordance with the biodynamic calendar and find this works with the rhythm of nature and makes better wine. They allow natural yeasts the ability to do their thing wherever possible and use sulfur sparingly and bottling with minimal fining and filtration.
The clone 10-5 Pinot Noir form our Trig Hill Vineyard was hand harvested and whole bunched pressed. The free run juice was then settled for 24 hours before being racked into a mix of seasoned oak barrels and stainless steel barrels for fermentation. After a short warm fermentation the wine was left on full lees and underwent indigenous MLF in spring. The wine was then tirage bottled and matured for 3.5 years prior to disgorging.
