Overview

Nestled above the snow capped mountains of Central Otago on the Bendigo Loop Road is the small Pinot Noir Vineyard "Someone’s Darling." Bright red fruits with a savory mushroom layer. Finishes with dark fruitiness.

Aging

Aged 8 months; a portion in stainless steel and a portion in oak to retain the pure intensity of the fruit.

Fermentation

The grapes were pumped straight to the tank without crushing in order to leave some whole berries. After a five-day cold soak, the must was warmed and fermentation was spontaneous. The ferment was hand plunged twice a day and pressed at dryness. The wine then underwent malolactic fermentation in tank and was racked off to oak and stainless-steel storage.
