The Thomas Road Vineyard sits on the highest, most westerly edge of the estate giving it a unique micro-climate. Year after year, this special single vineyard produces distinct, complex, earthy and elegant Pinot Noirs. This 2019 release represents our favorite barrels from the vintage.
By nose, forest floor, dark cherry, plum, raspberry jam, blueberry jam, currants. By mouth, roasting herbs, black cherry and plum. This wine is delicious with rosemary grilled lamb, duck with fig chutney, and anything to do with mushrooms.
Hand picked grapes from the top 30 rows, and a single ‘heritage’ clone, (Clone 12/Martini Selection) de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks or half ton macro bins and cold-soaked (using dry ice) for seven days. Before fermentation is complete, the new wine is gently pressed from the skins and transferred to French oak barrels.
Fermentation then goes to completion in the barrels, allowing us to stir the lees as the wine ages prior to blending and bottling.
