    VITICULTURE

    Harvest Dates: 14th, 16th and 22nd of March

    Climate: 2020 was a classical growing season with plenty of sunshine, not too much heat through Summer and a return to cool nights preceding harvest, ensuring acidities and flavours remained bright and vibrant. This was all built on good rainfall pre Christmas, which set the vines up with healthy working canopies that held through to the end of harvest. The weather over harvest was settled and dry, allowing fruit to be harvested in lovely condition.

    WINEMAKING

    Winemaking: Made with 100% Pinot Noir, the fruit was machine-harvested then crushed and immediately pressed at the winery to ensure the desired level of colour and flavour extraction.  Fermentation was at cool temperatures with selected yeast to create a wine with pure fruit flavours and freshness.

    This is a Vegan friendly wine
