No Pinot Noir in the blend this year due to frost. It’s a quarter Chardonnay and three quarters Gamay. Fermented utilising the flottaison method, a variation of carbonic maceration. Whole Gamay berries are placed in a vat and instead of air surrounding the wine, Chardonnay is pressed into the same vat. It is then sealed off as one would when carrying out carbonic maceration. Tasting Note: The nose has an incredibly and beautifully defined reduction that looks like lavender. Slightly unripe red cherry, red currant, lavender, fresh mountain air and a lick of pleasing purple fruit. The palate is succulent with a lime juice line of acidity that holds the beautifully sweet, perfumed fruit. There is a dried raspberry character that lifts from the palate through the olfactory which is encapsulating. - Jono Hersey, FWC
