  • A balanced and graceful Pinot Noir with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, and rhubarb and a touch of sage. Beautifully integrated oak supports the pure fruit through to a silky finish.

The grapes were destemmed into fermentation vessels where they underwent fermentation lasting for seven days. A seven-day maceration period followed to enable optimal extraction of flavour, colour and tannins. The wine was settled, racked and spent eight months ageing in a combination of stainless steel tanks with French oak influence to impart complexity. The wine was lightly filtered prior to bottling.

Winery

The fruit comes from two distinct Pinot Noir vineyards: Danny Vineyard and Grava, two of the most northerly plantings in Monterey County. The vineyards nestle up to the Gabilan Mountain Range on the eastern side of the Salinas Valley; approximately 10 miles directly across from the Santa Lucia Highlands. The marine influence of the nearby Monterey Bay and the morning fog which clears for the afternoon sun, results in a cool mesoclimate and a long hang-time for the fruit. The grapes reflect the cool climate character, with complex aromatics and flavours and natural balancing acidity. The vineyard is cultivated sustainably and are certified by the California Sustainable Wine Growing Alliance. Vines are VSP trained and pruned to two bud spurs spaced approximately 10cm apart; the vines are shoot thinned, leaf pulled and shoots are positioned with wire moves. These methods ensure adequate sunlight for optimising fruit-forward expression in the wines.
