Winemaking notes: Pinot Noir from block 25 on our Kayena vineyard located in the Tamar Valley. A single clone was chosen for this wine called the MV6 or Mother Vine 6. This clone is known for its deep colour, powerful dark fruits and
structure. The grapes were destemmed and left to cold soak for several days prior to ferment. Fermentation then took place in open fermenters with regular plunging. Once dry, the ferment was pressed off to barrel using a basket press. Malolactic fermentation and maturation took place over 12 months in French oak barriques with approx. 17% new oak used. It was bottled with an alcohol of 11.5%. Vegan-friendly.
“From Block 25 of Kayena Vineyard, MV6 clone; destemmed, cold soak; open fermented; matured for 12 months in French barriques (17% new). Aromatic and powerful, with layers of dark cherry and plum fruit, and positive tannins. Built to go the distance, but its balance makes it an each-way proposition.”
