Hand harvested fruit was put into an open top Pinot Noir tank as whole clusters to perform Carbonic fermentation (an enzymatic fermentation which occurs within the individual whole grapes). Upon completion of carbonic fermentation, a small amount of juice was drained from the tank to a single barrel. The wine was aged in oak for 12 months before being hand bottled unfiltered, and un-fined. This wine may form a small amount of sediment as a result of this low intervention process.


The 2021 season was another amazing vintage. Regular winter rainfall and an unseasonably cold spring kept cropping levels very low. These cropping levels were some of the lowest ever seen in Marlborough. Summer was very dry but stayed relatively cool resulting in healthy vines with no disease or water stress. There was a slow progression into Autumn with a long drawn-out ripening period where the fruit reached optimum ripeness in perfect harvest conditions.
