2020 was a warm vintage with low yields, providing excellent fruit quality. Pinot Noir grapes ripen very quickly in these conditions so it was critical to monitor closely around harvest to ensure we pick and optimal flavor and ripeness.
The fruit for this wine was harvested in March 2020 and fermented in stainless steel to intensify colour and preserve primary fruit flavours. Carefully selected cultured yeast was used in fermentation to enhance spice and texture on the palate. The wine was matured with French oak to develop vanilla and clove notes in the final blend.
