Vineyards

Big Shed, Macedon Ranges

Viticulture

A cool growing season in the Macedon Ranges, without many days over 35 degrees, allowed fruit to ripen slowly. Careful vine canopy management and crop thinning was required to ensure grapes were kept pristine. The Pinot Noir fruit had purity with good acid and structure.

Wine Making

This blanc de noir, was made in the methode traditionale style using hand picked Pinot Noir. The pristine fruit was picked in the cool of the morning and gently whole bunch pressed on
the same afternoon. The juice was fermented slowly in tank to retain freshness. After fermentation the wine matured on lees another 10 months to develop further depth. The wine
was then tiraged in February 2016, and rested on lees, in bottle, for 20 months. Disgorging was in October 2017.
