The fruit was de-stemmed, retaining while berries and cold soaked for five days before allowed to gradually warm, Fermentation started with a range of yeasts and ran for approximately seven days, during which the was plunged three times a day and drained and returned at least once. Some of the ferments were left on skins for an additional two-three weeks before being drained, pressed and settled. Finally the wine went to a selection of barrels and tanks for maturation and MLF.

This is one of my favourite Pinot Noirs. I prefer the fuller flavours of Central Otago to fulfill that "wine with red meat" need. This one, though, is my preferred aperitif, or simply "I feel like a wine" option. Light and smooth, it goes down well and leaves a clean fresh taste on the palate.
