From vines grown on a steep north facing slope in our Raupo vineyard, where the soils are dense and clay-based. The vines are cropped to produce enough fruit for just one bottle per vine, and this fruit is handpicked and completely destemmed before being fermented with wild yeast. The nose exhibits notes of ripe dark berry fruit, alongside hints of savoury forest floor, rosemary and leather. The palate is concentrated, with deep earth, spice and hedgerow fruit characters, framed by fine, well-integrated tannins and a persistent, fresh finish.
Grapes: Pinot Noir
