WINEMAKER NOTES
In the winery, each block and clone of Pinot Noir were treated independently with gentle destemming to achieve whole berries in the fermenters. The skin contact and temperature of each fermentation was carefully managed before pressing off the finished wine to age for 12 months in French Oak barrels. Fermenting and aging each clone separately, in small batches, is an important step in translating the layers of flavour and complexity from this delicate grape variety into the finished wine.
TASTING NOTES
Expansive red berry fruit aromas evolve in the glass to reveal layers of earthy spice and saline minerality. Polished tannins frame the palate which lingers with subtle floral notes on the finish. Charcuterie, crispy pan-seared halibut and duck confit are excellent companions with this enigmatic wine.
