Commercial description 

Harvest
The 2016 harvest took place in near-perfect conditions, allowing us to take our time. Excellent ripening conditions, with warm days and cooler evenings maintained concentration, structure and freshness in the fruit. The harvest started on 26th March and was concluded by 12th April.

Vinification
The Pinot Noir fruit was entirely hand picked and de-stemmed before being gravity fed into the fermentation vessels. 15% of the fermentation was comprised of whole bunches. The fermentations utilised natural occuring yeast populations under carefully monitored conditions. The grape skins were gently plunged with an average of 18 days skin contact. After fermentation the wines were matured in French oak for 12 months, of which 35% was new. Final analysis of our 2016 Pinot Noir shows a pH of 3.55, TA of 5.5 g/L and an alcohol of 13.6%.
