Winemaking Notes

Handpicked Fruit of 100% MV6 clone with 12 months in a blend of new (30%) new oak, with some selections going through whole bunch fermentation. A gentle filtration helped enable a smokey elegant appearance to enable a greater fruit complexity

Growing Conditions

2012 was a long dry growing season, coming off the back off a very wet 2011. This helped create wines of great acid profile and a return to beautiful ripe fruit characters. With dryer conditions the Pinot was able to ripen to its full potential displaying darker fruit spectrum.

Food Pairing

Mushroom risotto and black Périgord truffles.
