VINTAGE

Vintage 2016 was a warm, dry season in the Yarra Valley. Yields were above average for early ripening varieties. Harvest was very early, the earliest on record in some vineyards, and arrived very quickly.

WINEMAKING

This is a single clone wine of MV6 Pinot Noir. The fruit was handpicked in mid-February and chilled overnight before processing. The bunches were destemmed and cold soaked for five days before fermentation in open fermenters with hand plunging twice daily. The wine was matured for 10 months in Taransaud, Dargaud & Jaegle and Mercurey French oak barriques, 40% new.
