Fruit sourced from the Derwent Valley. Fermented in four puncheons, two open and two closed, with natural yeast. The closed puncheons were not plunged, while the opens were plunged lightly by hand just twice. Each batch was held on skins for 21 days before being pressed to oak and matured for four months on lees while undergoing MLF. Only 1188 bottles were produced without fining.
The finished wine has complexity in spades. Beguiling tannins, earthy aromatics and hard to match natural acidity. There’s some reductive notes but they’re balanced by cherry fruits and stalky hints. This is our lazy Pinot. Proof that sometimes the best winemaking doesn’t require much more than good fruit and an attentive babysitter.
