VINTAGE

2015 was an excellent vintage in Tasmania, particularly in the north of the island, where there was good yields and outstanding quality throughout. Settled weather in late spring provided ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set, resulting in well formed, even bunches. Well-timed rain in late November promoted healthy growth and warm, but not hot, summer temperatures followed by a mild and dry autumn allowed optimum ripening of Pinot Noir fruit. 

WINEMAKING

Harvest took place in late-March and the fruit was destemmed and cold soaked before wild fermentation in open fermenters with hand plunging. The wine was matured in French oak barriques for 11 months. The barrels were a mix of old and one third new from a select variety of coopers and forests.
