Technical sheet:

Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Country: New Zealand

Region: Central Otago

Alcohol: 14%

Vinification: Two thirds of ferments were de-stemmed only; the remaining third contained 20-35% whole clusters. The must underwent 8-9 days of cold maceration, being hand plunged once daily. The ferments were heated after this and all fermented with indigenous yeasts. The ferments lasted for an average of 8-10 days during which time they were hand plunged once to twice daily with the temperature peaking at 30C. The wine stayed on skins for a further 7-9 days post-dryness, and was plunged once daily with increasing ease. It underwent malolactic fermentation in the spring, was racked out of barrel in late autumn and filtered prior to bottling.

Ageing/Maturation: When the wine tasted in harmony it was pressed off to barrel where it resided on full lees for 12 months.

Cellar Potential: 7-10 years
