    97 Pts, Decanter, 2023

The grapes were hand-picked, meticulously hand-sorted, and destemmed. A cold soak took place for three to four days prior to fermentation, which took place in open-topped one-tonne vats using natural yeasts. Fermentation lasted four to six weeks to maximise the aromatics. The wine was pressed to old, 500-litre oak puncheons of three to four years and matured in oak for 12 months. This wine was not filtered or fined before being bottled.

Winery

Planted in 1999, the grapes come from a 5.5 hectare block of Pinot Noir in the Mornington Peninsula. The clones are a mix of MV6, 114 and 115. Situated at an elevation of 65 metres with a north-western orientation, the vineyard has a great airflow, which minimises disease pressure as the canopy dries quickly. The sandy loam soil provides excellent drainage, essential nutrients for vine health and imparts minerality to the flavour profile.
