Bright, deep crimson.
Intensely perfumed dark cherry, black tea, dried sage and amaro aromas.
Seductive red fruits envelope a tightly woven line of graphite and bergamot tea, with lingering dried herbs, orange peel, and cherry fruit. Elegant whole bunch tannin and oak spice linger on the palate, with vibrant acidity exuding class and poise.
Will reward careful cellaring of seven to ten years.
One of the coolest and wettest Octobers in history hampered flowering and reduced yields by 30-40%. A cooler ripening period produced wines with intense fruit concentration, slightly higher acidity, and greater elegance and finesse.
Pristine pure Pinot Noir from the famed Lowestoft Vineyard was hand-picked and fermented in 1T open top fermenters, with up to 100% whole bunch inclusion. Gently hand plunged as required throughout fermentation, with gentle pressing off skins to tank post ferment, followed by 10 months maturation in large format French oak (20% new) before careful blending and bottling with minimal additions.
