Description

Vintage

Spring and Summer were extremely hot and dry. A late season period of cool weather slowed ripening, allowing additional time for flavour development in the weeks before harvest.

Vineyards

Fruit from the Jerome and Eliza vineyards have both contributed to this wine, each lending their unique character to the final blend. Jerome’s dark brooding tannins provide mid palate structure, while the supple plush characters typical of Eliza bring elegance and depth.

Varietal

100% Pinot Noir, clones Abel, 115, 777, 667, 943, 6.

Winemaking

Hand picked Pinot Noir grapes were destemmed in spearate batches, with a 15% wholebunch component used to add complexity and structure. Fermentation with indigenous yeast was following by 12 months of maturation in new and older French oak barriques.
