Wine Profile

Tasting Notes
Subtle smokiness and bright fruit on the nose & palate.

Vineyard Notes
Shoot thinning is performed early in the year; after fruit set, leaves are removed in the fruit zone on the east side of the vines. Later, the clusters are counted and thinned to a maximum of 28 clusters per vine. Once the grapes have achieved 75% color, a final cluster thinning is performed to remove any green or second crop clusters. The average yield is 2 tons per acre.

Production Notes
Fermented 15% whole cluster, and only moved with gravity.

Winemaker Notes
Coming from a barrel selection from our 13 estate acres of pinot noir in the dundee hills.
