Predominantly selected from the Delta vineyard, located on the south side of Marlborough's Wairau Valley. The vineyard comprises of 27 hectares of Pinot Noir from selected Dijon clones planted in 2002. The vineyard's rich clay soil and elevation combined with Marlborough's warm days and cool nights, make this site ideal for producing top quality Pinot Noir. During a cool evening, selected Pinot Noir clones were harvested from the vineyard and transported to the winery where they were kept in a cold soak for four days to extract maximum colour, flavour and tannin form the grapes. Fermented at warm temperatures with a carefully selected yeast strain, the grapes were hand plunged up to eight times daily during the height of fermentation. The wine was then pressed and left to mature on lees for nine months. Heather then selected her preferred barrels for the final blend of the Delta Pinot Noir 2021
