Comments
When the grapes for this Pinot Noir reached optimal ripeness they were hand picked then gently de-stemmed, spending a week long cold soak. Each parcel was fermented using indigenous yeast and hand plunged to extract vibrant colour, flavour and delicate tannin structure. The wine was then separately pressed into a mix of new and old French oak barrels to mature for 12 months. Natural malolactic fermentation began at the beginning of spring. The wine was bottled on 4 March 2015. *Only available in New Zealand*
