Whole bunch pressed Pinot Noir, allowed three hours of skin contact for the palest pink colour. Barrel fermented, and its texture built by resting on lees prior to bottling.
Mid salmon pink
(more colour this year from the smaller berries/thicker skins, a hallmark of the 2020 season!)
Floral notes lead a chorus of red summer berries into an elegant frame of dried flowers and cinnamon spice. The nose culminates in a crisp yet complex bouquet.
The flow of fresh cut strawberry is underpinned by a refreshing citrus spark of blood orange and pink grapefruit zest. French oak fermentation provides a subtly creamy frame while providing a platform for the Pinot Noir tannins that provide for the textural and dry finish.
If you can resist, the White Pinot will cellar for up to 18 months.
