This Pinot Noir has been produced from 3 specially selected clones estate grown in our Denmark vineyard. These are part of the group of rare Burgundian clones, isolated by Dijon university from the best performing Pinot vineyards in Burgundy – clones 114, 115, and 777.

The Burgundian clones were handpicked and handplunged in small one tonne open fermenters. A proportion of the whole bunches were incorporated in the ferment to introduce a “carbonic maceration” derived complexity.

The wine was matured for eighteen months in 100% new French oak barriques.

A limited production of only 1200 bottles.

Dark ruby with purple hues.

A complex nose of cherries, spice, licorice and mocha complemented by perfumed floral notes, gamey, mushroom characters and toasty French oak.

The selection of clones has given the wine impressive texture and fruit weight. Rich flavours of black cherry and raspberry are balanced by more complex hints of spice, mushroom and aniseed. The wine finishes with mocha and gamey characters supported by fine grained mature tannins and vanillin French oak.
