The Brief
How's it taste?
This 2017 release is a blend from three certified-organic vineyards – our TWR home block here at the winery, and the Clayvin and Ridge Vineyards in the Southern Valleys which are owned by the Giesen Family. We were very excited to be able to procure some extra organic-certified fruit from the Ridge and Clayvin blocks as we have seen the quality they have produced over a number of years. 2017 was a stellar vintage in Marlborough for Pinot Noir. This resultant blend has great fruit weight and power, with the depth of flavour and complexity. The wine has a great approachable fleshiness but also the line and length for some serious cellaring.All fruit for this wine was hand-picked, hand-sorted then destemmed and berry sorted as to ensure that only pristine, perfect Pinot berries make it into the fermenters. Gently transferred to small one tonne open fermenters, hand plunged twice daily. Some parcels had a small percentage of whole bunches included. Cold soak for 7-8 days, 5- to 7-day ferment, up to 14 days post-ferment maceration. Pressed off on taste then filled to oak after 24 hours. In oak for 11 months – all French oak, various different coopers, 30% new, with the balance in older oak.
