A lovely orangey-pink hue, our 2016 release is quintessential strawberries and cream on the nose with a hint of red apple and a light herbal note of basil. The palate is juicy and approachable but with enough complexity and acidity to insight plenty of interest. Lush berry and watermelon emerge on the palate while the finish showcases bright pink grapefruit and pomegranate. Lively acidity balances the very slight residual sugar.
Our 2016 release is a 60/40 blend of young vine Pinot Noir complemented by more mature plantings of Pinot Meunier, dating back to 1985. The Pinot Noir base was made with lightly pressed, whole bunch clusters giving us beautiful lifted aromatics. The Pinot Meunier was also gently handled and spent nearly seven days on skins to give the wine its brilliant colour. By fermenting to near dry, the vibrancy of the fruit character shines through unimpeded.
