The power of collaboration! If you are obsessed with Pinot Noir, this wine is a must!

HARVEST NOTES

Grape neighbours make great neighbours! This new and exciting Pinot Noir was made with grapes from our own farm and our grape neighbour, Coyote Vineyard. The original vineyard was planted in Chardonnay but in 2009 it was replanted with Pinot Noir and we could not have been more thrilled. Annabel Stanley, owner and expert viticulturist, delivered the grapes up the hill by tractor where they were combined with our own estate fruit. 

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Once the grapes hit the crush pad they were fermented in small, ½ ton lots and cold soaked for 10 days. They were punched down three times a day and then gently basket pressed and aged in 25% new French Oak for 10 months (think gravity flow and little-to-no pumps) 

TASTING NOTES

This Pinot noir was made in the vineyard—minimal intervention and maximum farming effort! It is delicate and elegant, with a beautiful, soft texture, explosive flavour profile, and excellent tannin structure. Hints of violet and raspberry on the nose and flavours of cherry and mushroom on the palate make this the kind of Pinot you might not want to share. Just remember, being a good neighbour is what got us here.
