Product Description:

"Season: Lovely winter rains and a wonderful spring for a good, even fruit set and big healthy canopies. Ideal summer growing conditions, with an average January temperature of 27.5°C. We had a welcome rain event in mid February that gave us a little breathing space. All our Pinot Noir was hand picked and in near perfect condition at the winery.

"Vinification: 100% hand picked fruit. Due to exceptional fruit quality 40% was fermented as whole bunch. This was a perfect opportunity to harness the whole bunch perfumes of the Yarra. Five day cold soak, mix of drain and returns and light plunging for 10-12 days. Indigenous fermentation in 5T open fermenters and 4T oak vats. Matured in a mix of new (10%) and old barriques for malolactic fermentation to increase mouth feel." - Winery
