Winemaking:
The fruit was entirely destemmed, and fermentation took
place in large-format concrete and wooden tanks.
Fermentation occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts
and lasted for 19 days. Following fermentation, the wine was
pressed and racked into French oak barriques (of which
20% were new) and underwent indigenous malolactic
fermentation. The wine was racked only once, with the total
maturation period lasting 14 months. It was then bottled
without fining or filtration.
Vineyard :
Planted exclusively to Pinot Noir, the Haven block is the
most sheltered of the vineyard blocks. It is a relatively level
site surrounded by thick tree belts which protect it from
strong winds. The soils are classed as a duplex loam over
clay, have a relatively higher percentage of loam and a
moderate amount of sandstone pebbles interspersed
through the soil profile. The lack of exposure to strong winds
allows the vines to keep a rich green canopy until
comparatively late in the ripening period and the resulting
Haven Pinot Noir possesses fruit in the more purplish
spectrum with a certain richness and lushness yet a firm
underlying tannic structure. Regal and poised, Haven shows
excellent capacity for ageing.
Food matching:
Elegant and fruity, this will pair well with a broad selection of
meats, game, chicken, lamb, beef.
