Our Pinot Noir
Our Pinot Noir plantings comprise a complex mix of 20 different clone and rootstock combinations of differing ages, the oldest planted in 1980. Each combination has subtle but noticeable differences both in growth and flavours. Some will have larger bunches, some smaller, some grow upright, some like to flop. Some rootstocks are more tolerant of drought, others are not. Each combination has a different way of expressing the terroir of the vineyard providing a complex palette for our winemaker to draw from.
