The Pinot Noir produced from Sexton have a lovely texture, with dark cherries and plums, sweet spice notes and youthful tannins.
Hand-picked, all fruit is chilled overnight to 12 degrees Celsius. The grapes were 100% destemmed, soaked cold for five days, then allowed to warm gently into a wild ferment.
All parcels were matured in French oak – 25% new, 75% older – for 10 months in 225L barriques, Taranasaud, Vicard and Dargaud & Jaeglé. Racked to blend, no fining, no filtration. Bottled by gravity.
