'An excellent pinot.'
Hand picked fruit is destemmed without crushing and elevated into small open fermenters. The must is left un-inoculated for 2-3 days. When fermentation is observed cultured yeast is added. Fermentation temperatures peak at around 32 °C and during fermentation the cap is plunged up to 3 times per day. 2-3 days after fermentation is complete, the must is gently pressed and transferred into French Oak bariques (25% New, 75% second third and fourth use) where it undergoes MLF before winter. The wine is racked once in the spring and put back to barrels for further ageing. It is racked again in January for bottling in February, 10 months after harvest.

2015 Vintage Review:
'Medium to full red/purple colour. Shy, subdued aromas, with strawberry to raspberry fruit and the palate is light to medium-bodied and again juicy fruity, with mild but insistent tannins adding backbone and length. An excellent pinot.'
