With Pinot Noir is very important to preserve the quality and soundness of the fruit in the winery. Fruit is machine harvested at night and early mornings to maximize quality. After de-stemming berries are sorted before transferred to 5 ton stainless steel tanks. Grapes are ‘cold soaked’ for a few days and natural fermentation starts slowly, before introducing a yeast strain to take over and finish the fermentation process. This gives a hint of native yeast complexity, but a consistent full fermentation. After dryness is reach the wines is racked into older barrels to complete malolactic fermentation. Wine spends only 3 months in older barrels before rack back into stainless steel tanks for aging before bottling.
