Background

Our Pinot Noir comes from one of the finest cool-climate vineyards located in the Adelaide HIlls. The soils in this vineyard are ancient; research estimates the soils are 1800 million years old, mostly gravel with limestonecalcium silicates and ferrous pebbles spread throughout. Hand-pruned, harvested and made it is our holotype for Pinot Noir. Whole bunches of hand-selected and picked in the cool of the early morning dawn. Destemmed without crushing the fruit. 30% of this was whole cluster fermented, whike the remaining fruit was crushed and went through traditional open fermentation with 30 day extended skin contact. These parcels were racked into 30% new and seasoned French oak hogsheadsto mature and take on character for seven months. The wine was then bottled without fining or filtration so that the true expression of the vineyard shines through with artisianal winemaking to add complexity.
