VINTAGE CONDITIONS: 2016 was a great vintage for Pinot. Our crops were balanced and the summer was not too hot or cold with an amazing long and dry autumn that let the grapes develop to ultimate ripeness to create this bold wine.

WINEMAKING: Traditional Burgundian methods were used for vinification & elevage. A proportion of the whole bunch was placed at the bottom of the vats, with de-stemmed berries on top. One week cold soak was followed by a natural fermentation during which time the floating cap of skins was plunged twice daily. After fermentation, the wine was tasted daily to determine the day of pressing. Total cuvasion was around 3 weeks. It was gently pressed pneumatically then aged in French oak for 18months on yeast lees. The Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in spring.
