Winemaker's Notes

The spicy, earthy nose has fruity aromas of cherry extract, blueberry and strawberry.  Smoothly textured with silky tannins, a taste finds sour cherry, blackberry, raspberry and cranberry with a delicately toasty aftertaste.  

Sourced September 13th and 14th from the Moira and Mottiar Vineyards as grape sugars averaged 20.8° Brix.

After primary fermentation in stainless-steel vats, the wine was divided to age in sixteen older 228-L barrels and one new barrel (or 6%), all of French oak.  After nine months, it was bottled in August 2019.

At the time of bottling, the wine was measured at 12% alcohol, 0 grams per litre residual sugar, 5.7 grams per litre titratable acidity and 3.75 pH.

Only 424 cases were produced. Enjoy now to 2024.

Keenly made, precise, layered like a millefeuille yet modern. Showcasing a notably balanced approach and appealing tension derived from acidity. An almost chalky salinity adds a stylish element to the palate. Pure, made with a light-handed touch, and fruit that highlighted above all else. Rhythmic in mouthfeel with a long, clean finish.

The Small Lot Pinot is a blend of Moira and Mottiar vineyards. The juice was wild fermented in a combination of oak cuve, stainless steel and concrete, then aged in a combination of old and new French oak barrels. What a beautiful Pinot Noir! The nose shows tart cherries, earth, spice, crushed stones, wild blueberries, cranberries and elegant spice notes. It’s silky smooth on the palate with brambly raspberries, cran-cherries, anise, toasted oak spices and a finessed finish that goes on and on. Wonderful precision and length.
