WINEMAKING

+

The fruit is handpicked across multiple vineyards & blocks, and destemmed into 2 ton open fermenters as whole berries and left to start fermenting naturally. It is not touched until a 2-3° drop in baumé, which allows fermentation to occur inside the grape berry to increase the aromatics of the finished wine. Once fermentation starts strongly then the ferment is hand-plunged 2-3 times per day for 15 days. The wine is left on skins for post ferment maturation for another 15 days. It is than pressed off skins and racked to barrel. 10 % new oak across d’Aquittaine and Sirugue extra tight grain light toast. In spring the wine is racked and returned to barrel. After a total of 12 months barrel maturation the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

REVIEW

+

“The 2022 Pinot Noir hails from the Mornington Peninsula and leads with aromas of raw cocoa, bramble and woodsy spice, pomegranate molasses and Satsuma plum. On the palate, the wine is balanced, supple and spicy, with a velvety tannic texture and layers of red fruit and forest floor. It’s a lovely wine, classical in its styling and elegant. 13.3% alcohol, sealed under Diam and wax” – Erin Larkin, 93/100.
