Druvsammansättning: pinot noir
Information om vinet i denna årgång: The grapes were hand-harvested and chilled overnight prior to hand sorting. Most of the fruit was then de-stemmed into open-top fermenters, the majority of which also had a percentage of whole-bunch inclusion. The fruit was left to soak on skins prior to the onset of indigenous yeast fermentation, then plunged daily. After fermentation the wine was pressed, racked and filled to French oak barriques (40% new).
Individual clones were separately aged in barrel for 18 months, prior to blending in December. Once in tank the wine was lightly egg white fined, then bottled in March 2017 with alcohol 13.5%, pH 3.65 and acidity 5.7 g/l. pH.
Provningsanteckningar: Spontaninhandlad Marlborough-pinne visar sig vara ett lyckokast. Det är Cherry-Coke, orientaliska kryddor och våt asfalt i doften. Körsbärsyoughurt, kaffe och saltlakrits i munnen. En mineralpuff på slutet. Generöst och elegant på samma gång.
