2020 Muddy Water SANS Pinot Noir
Intensely scented with rich and vivid fruits leading through to a full and flavoursome palate. Dark cherry, cassis and a vibrant mix of berries flows through the wine. Chalky with energetic fruit tannins and long juicy finish.
Certified organic from predominantly ungrafted vines, managed by hand with limited irrigation. Planted in a variety of clones on calcareous clay soils on the gradual Omihi slopes. Long stretches of hot, dry weather through summer and a cooler autumn produced optimum fruit ripening at harvest of clean fruit. Hand-picked, small quantities of intensely flavoured and perfectly ripened fruit delivered to the winery

Hand picked and sorted thoroughly before a natural fermentation on skins. We allowed the new wine to rest for 30 days on skins before a gentle press to clay amphora and used oak barriques. Full natural MLF went through during the warmer Spring months, before blending and estate bottling.
