VITICULTURE
Harvest Date:
19 March 2015
Climate:The season started with a very dry, late winter and early spring. Whilst the temperatures were similar to the long term average, they varied greatly, with a number of warm days followed by cold spells. Colder conditions over flowering resulted in average yields. In late December, the climate became very warm and dry; ideal conditions for ripening. This fine weather continued over harvest, meaning the grapes could be picked at ideal ripeness, with intense flavours.
Vine Management:100% Pinot Noir grapes. The vines were pruned to two canes on a vertical shoot positioning trellis.

VINIFICATION
Winemaking:
The fruit was machine harvested, then crushed and de-stemmed. Two to three hours of skin contact in the press ensured a suitable amount of colour and flavour extraction. The juice was lightly pressed and cold settled. A cold fermentation with selected yeasts ensured a wine with lifted aromatics and freshness.
Winemaker:Sam Smail and Diana Katardzhieva.
