Sold Out!

Vintage: 2018

Varietals: Pinot Noir

Farming: Organic/Biodynamic, Unfined/Unfiltered

A bright fruited, expressive nose, with notes of dark cherry, juniper berry and an intriguing hint of fennel and manuka flower. There is a savoury taste with firm tannins and ripe fruit finishing with a lively mineral edge to balance.

The grapes are harvested by hand, chilled, sorted and de-stemmed uncrushed into small wooden cuves for prolonged fermentation using natural yeasts. Pressing takes place after one lunar phase – 28 days where the wine rests for a time more until being put to barrel. Unfined. Unfiltered.
