PINOT NOIR 2018
The fruit was sourced from our flagship Fareham Lane Vineyard. The parcels selected were a combination of our Clone 10/5 & 777. These were hand harvested and then gently processed. The individual batches that make up this wine were treated traditionally, allowing the natural fruit concentration and ripe tannin structure to shine.
After 10 months of maturation in 100% French oak barriques – 40% new, 35% 1-year-old with the balance 2-year-old. Only selected barrels were chosen for this gorgeously divine and complex blend.
The nose is opulent, with rich red fruits, smoky tones and toasted nut characters. The palate is long, lavish with a generous length that will only become
even more subtle with some bottle age.
