Our Pinot Noir was hand harvested from our estate vineyards at optimum ripeness and physiological maturity. After meticulous hand sorting, the grapes were destemmed and each pick was fermented separately in small open-top fermentors. Fermentation was achieved using native yeast with low fermentation temperatures giving soft phenolics and fresh aromatics. After total fermentor time of 10 days, the wines were then racked to French oak barrels and aged for 10 months..
