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.

14 months on lees in French oak barriques
100% wild fermentation in small stainless and concrete vessels
Cherry, blackberry, and savoury herbs on the palate, with hints of violet
on the on finish.
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.
Enjoy now or cellar through 2023
