2019 was a year of low yields in both Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Our Pinot Noir was harvested2019 was a year of low yields in both Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Our Pinot Noir was harvestedand given 12 hours’ skin contact in the press before pressing and clarifying. It was thenblended with Pinot Gris which was also given time on its skins in the press. The Pinot Gris addsa fruitiness and a touch of Comice pear-like character to the wine. Both juices were blendedtogether and co-fermented in tank. The wine was aged on lees which brings more textureand a creamy mouthfeel to the wine. Fermentation lasted 14 -21 days at a closely monitoredaverage temperature of 16 degrees Celsius. We aimed for a relatively long ferment to allow forclean, complex flavors to be exhibited.

The Pinot Noir is planted on the Southern section of the vineyard . This has the highestThe Pinot Noir is planted on the Southern section of the vineyard . This has the highestelevation and provides extra warmth and less frost risk. In addition to this our Pinot Noir isclosely planted to reduce vigor resulting in lower crop levels of around 45hl/ha, allowing us toget physiologically ripe fruit and give a true expression of this variety. Our Pinot Noir is all handtended throughout the season and at harvest. Our mix of Pinot Noir clones were specificallychosen for their flavor profile with 50% of the vineyard planted in Burgundy clones. The parcelselected for Rosé production largely consists of Clone 5 and the Swiss clone Mariafeld. Bothhave slightly bigger berries and thinner skins.

The Pinot Gris is located on a similar hillsideface as the Pinot Noir. It consists of Pinot Gris clones Berrysmith, Orvaille and GN 2-21. It isimportant that the two Pinots are fermented together as they have complimentary roles andsome of the phenolics found in Pinot Gris skins help fix color and aromatics in the Pinot Noir.
