Varietals: Pinot Noir
Farming: Organic/Biodynamic, Low added SO2
Rose hip aromatics with a fresh, yet concentrated backbone of red summer fruits. There is a nuanced power about the wine - It is ripe but grounded in freshness. Forward and confident without being large and brash. The details are endless but the wine is approachable.
Fermented 50% whole cluster in stainless steel. Daily pumpovers for the first 5 days, and then daily punchdowns for the remainder of primary fermentation. The wine was pressed and moved to neutral oak barrels where it completed malolactic fermentation over the following 6 weeks. The wine remained in neutral oak, and was not racked/moved until bottling. The only additive used was S02 (40ppm).
