Blend
100% Pinot Noir


All the grapes for this wine come from four separate blocks within our Home Block Vineyard, each farmed differently and harvested as much as three weeks apart. This is now the second year of farming Home Block organically and the results show in the bottle. In true Pinot form, this wine is light and delicate, though has a riper fruit profile due to the warmer vintage. It is made in a truly low-intervention style: natural fermentation, natural malolactic fermentation, unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes
Cherry, blackberry, and savoury herbs on the palate, with hints of violet on the on finish.
Vineyard Notes
Above average growing degree days in the spring contributed to an early budbreak. Cooler days and evenings arrived in August, which slowed down the ripening of the grapes and allowed for greater flavour development while retaining freshness and acidity.
Winemaker Notes
Enjoy now or cellar through 2023
Food Pairing Notes
Rustic root vegetables, grilled meats (especially pork, chicken, venison), fuller-bodied seafood.
