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

After eight months of maturation, the wine was stabilised, sterile filtered and bottled.

Fermentation

After a five-day cold soak, the must was warmed to 20°C and fermentation commenced on its own wild yeast. The ferment was hand plunged twice daily until dry when it was pressed off. The wine then underwent full malolactic fermentation in tank.
