Tasting Notes :


Season :

 2021 was a cooler season across Victoria with some timely rainfall.

Very good quality in all vineyards giving ripeness, flavour and intensity. 

  Tasting notes :

 Medium bright red. Expressive Pinot, classic strawberry and red cherry, savoury and
some spice notes. Soft, plump, textural, spice, gentle acidity. 
 Winemaking :

 Grapes are both hand and machine harvested with a percentage of

the hand harvested used for whole bunch inclusion.

 A combination of winemaking techniques are used to produce a final blend with complexity and balance.

 These include cold maceration prior to fermentation,

inclusion of whole bunches and warm fermentation at 28 ?ŠC to 32 ?ŠC. 

Minimal handling and filtration is adopted to preserve fruit flavour.
