WINE ANALYSIS ALCOHOL VOLUME 13.5% ACIDITY 5.9 RESIDUAL SUGAR WINE BACKGROUND VINTAGE REGION This wine was sourced from our Claim 431 Vineyard in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. The vineyard’s free draining loam soils over schist gravel make it a natural home for growing outstanding Pinot Noir. The huge diurnal temperature variation, adds to the structure and concentration of the wine. VINTAGE CONDITIONS 2014 was an outstanding vintage. Comprised
of 10 Pinot Noir clones, spread across three
different terraces, the vineyard’s challenge was
to enhance individual expression of the fruit
whilst ensuring even ripening. In 2014 picking
was slightly early; the call was based on the
tannin and flavour profile, where floral notes
and vibrancy of flavour took preference. There
was a swing towards whole bunch fruit which
delivers texture, layered tannins and juicy acid
profile. GRAPE VARIETY Pinot Noir MATURATION The grapes were gently de-stemmed, allowing
whole berries to remain intact. After a week
long cold soak, each parcel was fermented
separately, with a combination of wild and
cultured yeast. The batches were hand
plunged to extract the vibrant colour, flavour
and delicate tannin structure. Parcel’s were
pressed separately to a mix of new and used
French oak barrels or remained in tank. In the
spring after completing malolactic
fermentation, each parcel and tank was
tasted and blended.
