Greystone Vineyard Ferment Pinot Noir 2018 750ML

Graceful, pure & enchanting in the mouth with fine,silky tannins & a freshness that belies the density on the finish. Delicate nose of chalky petrichor, cinnamon and cigarbox spice with length, minerality & dark berries on the palate.


Hand picked and fermented outside in the vineyard rows where the fruit was grown. We use a separate destemmer, that lives in the vineyard, so the fruit never left the rows. We allow the fruit to start fermentation in its own time and respond to the rhythm of the season. Therefore the fermentations are driven not only by indigenous vineyard yeast but also the ambient temperatures. So we are extending the vintage influence on the wine itself. We gently hand plunge the vats once per day and then allow a short maceration post-ferment for balance and harmony. The young wine is then aged for 15 months in aged oak barrels before being estate bottled - unfined and unfiltered - Dom

ABV: 13.5%
