2016 Home Vineyard Pinot Noir

100% Estate Grown Pinot Noir sourced from our 22 year old dry grown vines. Low yields (approx 1.2kg/vine or 4.5 tonne/ha average) to ensure perfect ripeness. Handpicked, 80% whole berries, 20% whole bunches, wild yeast fermentation for 21 days. Matured in 30% new French oak barriques for 12 months, then a further 3 months blended in tank prior to bottling to allow for natural clarification and integration.


The wine has a complex bouquet of ripe red fruits, fine spice and dried culinary herbs (sage, thyme). The palate is silky and persistent; showing macerated berries, red liquorice, iodine, and basalt-derived minerality. A sweet succulent mid-palate follows with fine dusty tannins and a long textural finish. Bottled in June 2017.

2820 bottles produced. Alc.13.5%. Cellar to 2024.
