2022 Two Estates Pinot Noir



Grapes were hand-picked and brought directly to the winery in 1/2-ton totes in perfect condition. They were then put onto a belted incline, and de-stemmed into two-ton, open-top, stainless steel fermenters. The must was cold-soaked for five days. Fermentation was complete in 10 days, then the wine was pressed back into two-ton tanks, settled overnight and racked into French oak barrels. The wine aged in French oak for 16 months, racked into neutral French oak after 10 months. It was then blended and bottled unfiltered and unfined and bottle-aged for a minimum of 12 months before release.
