The ‘Neo-Classical Objective’ Pinot Noir

This ‘classic’ has a well-defined bouquet with touches of wild fennel and almost garrigue-like scents infusing the ferrous red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, brown spices, quite ferrous and rustic.

All vineyards were sorted and fermented with 100% whole clusters. Total skin contact ranged from 13-19 days. All vineyards were basket pressed in our traditional wooden ratchet presses.
