Winemaking Notes

The 5th vintage from the Quarry Road Vineyard, this Pinot Noir spent 16 months in French oak barrels; 30% of which were new. Another 10% were aged in new medium plus toast barrels, to encourage the fruitiness of the wine to come through and to round out the strong tannins. Earthy notes are accompanied by aromas of cedar and cranberry. Firm yet approachable tannins on the tongue are followed by wild blueberry and black currant leaf.

Growing Conditions

Quarry Road Estate vineyard. Tight planting on mixed limestone and clay soil. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest. Certified organic & biodynamic.
