Vintage 2010
2010 produced an abundance of fruit with great backbone of acidity and tannins. After a perfect, long dry autumn we handpicked less than 900g/vine of wonderful, physiologically ripe grapes for a vibrant and alluring Pinot.

Hans Comments
The grapes were given four days to cold-soak before a natural wild yeast initiation of the ferment. The wine spent 24 days on skins before being pressed and transferred into 20% new French Allier barriques for malolactic fermentation and further aging for 20 months. Unfined & unfiltered to retain the great flavours. Natural sediments may show.

Tasting Notes
An exceptional rich ruby red wine of outstanding depth and structure. Fresh, vibrant and alluring it displays notes of fresh raspberries, black cherries and dark plums with a ‘smoky’ undertone held together with ripe tannins and fine acidity and minerality. This elegant stunner will age beautifully over the next 10+ years.
