Harvest was late February good growing season. Good clean fruit with no disease or pest damage, harvested meticulously by friends and family. 
Once in the winery, the bunches were carefully distemmed with 1 bin (roughly 15%) left as whole bunches. Fermentation took place over 7 days and the ferment was gently pumped over using gravity only. Pressed and transferred to French oak barriques (also by gravity), no new oak was used. 2 second fill barrels and the rest older and more seasoned for a subtle influence. The wine was left to rest on lees for 4 months where it completed malolactic fermentation and an initial sulphur addition was made. In June the wine was blended and no finning or filtration took place.

On opening, raspberry and cranberry like aroma, just the right amount of tannin and lingering bright acidity.
After this wine settles, it moves into a delicate and gentle flavour with a burst of freshness. Perfect for those who are not after a heavy Pinot.
