TASTING NOTE

THE HARVEST

It’s exciting times with our Pinot Noir with new sites and different clones coming into production.

The 2014 crop was one of our largest, but even with this increased yield the fruit developed very well with the berries achieving even phenolic ripeness.

IN THE CELLAR

The wine was fermented in open barrels and also in stainless steel tanks. The wine spent 15 months in 500L French Oak barrels. 15% new oak, the rest in older barrels
