Description

Vintage

The 2020 season started cool and dry, with warmer Summer temperatures leading into a long, warm Autumn. The season delivered lower yields of small berries, with excellent ripeness and flavour concentration.

Vineyards

The Eliza vineyard forms the backbone of this unique wine, with bright fresh acids and delicate flavours and aromas. The heavy clay and alluvial gravels of this block lend themselves to bigger bunches and berries, yielding juice with just the faintest touch of pink, and ultimately a brilliant, pale wine.

Varietal

100% Pinot Noir, Clones 115, Abel, 5 and 6.

Winemaking

Hand picked grapes were delicately whole bunch pressed using a long and gentle pressure to ensure the minimum of colour was extracted from the skins. A very cool and long fermentation in stainless steel was used to preserve the delicate aromatics and elegant structure typical of this wine, while a period of time on light lees built mid palate texture and depth.
