Vintage Note: 2021 was a terrific vintage for both vineyard quality and quantity. We had a wet spring followed by a healthy amount of sunshine and some well-timed rain in January, leading to large green healthy canopies. The overall temperature during the growing season was lower than average which led to a long slow ripening period and great concentration of flavours and natural tannin structure.
Winemaking Notes: Hand picked, all fruit is chilled overnight to 12 degrees Celsius. Indigenous yeast fermentation. Fermented in small oak fermenters and stainless steel open vats. The MV6 parcels were fermented as whole bunches, while the Pommard, Abel and D clones were destemmed, soaked cold for 5 days, then allowed to warm gently into a wild ferment. All parcels were matured in French oak – 25% new, 75% older – for 8 months in 225L barriques, Taransaud, D&J and Vicard. Racked to blend, no fining, no filtration. Bottled by gravity.
Variety: Pinot Noir
