Pinot Noir from 20-40 year old vines grown on grey marl and clay/loam soils. 1/3 of the grapes are destemmed by hand, and the other 2/3 are whole bunch. The grapes undergo carbonic maceration. Very light extraction. Pressing occurs, then remaining fermentation occurs in tank. Bottled March 2017, then aged in bottle 5 months prior to release. 20ppm SO2.


Beautiful perfume, gentle and aromatic and very bright, subtle hints of red fruits and baking spice. It's really quite delicate and refined. And super clean. Hints of cured meats which will probably become more apparent as the wine ages. Silky in the mouth, strawberries, cherries, raspberries and red apples. Perfect balance, effortless to drink. Acidity is mild, and not at the forefront, but well intertwined. Some mineral action, and then a cruisy finish with soft fine tannins kicking around for a bit. Yum.
