    Pinot Noir Red

    Winemaking Notes

    A beautiful, long, hot summer in 2020 enabled the grapes to fully ripen on the vine, resulting in the intensity of flavour and body. Harvested between 3rd – 20th October 2020 from Dijon and Spätburgunder still wine clones only, each clone from each identified vineyard underwent its own specific protocol.

    Small batch fermentations were undertaken with manual pigéage (punch downs) to gently maximise colour, flavour, and structure extraction. The wine was then transferred to barrel for 100% malolactic fermentation and ageing.

    30% new French oak was used as well as experimental American and Eastern European oak. Aged for nine months in barrel, the batches were then blended and left to settle for two weeks before bottling.

    The wine has no fining or filtration to retain the delicate nuances of the fruit and oak. It demonstrates a forward primary fruit character synonymous with young vines that will develop in intensity and potential even further with time.
