Vineyards

Vintage

2018 was a very warm growing season, being dry through Spring and   Summer, and a change to wetter conditions in the Autumn harvest period. Our quickest harvest to date had the Pinot Noir rapidly picked from the vines between periods of rain, with great flavours.

Winemaking Winemakers

Paul Bourgeois and Richelle Tyney Our selected estate vineyard blocks were kept separate until final blending. The grape bunches are mostly destemmed and all fermented naturally in open vats. After gentle plunging, the wine is drained to barrels for 11 months prior to blending. 

ABV: 12.5%
