Giant Steps 'Primavera Vineyard' Pinot Noir 2019

A cool start to the season was punctuated by a few solid rain events in December that resulted in very large healthy green vineyard canopies. The final stage of the growing season was warmer than average which led to accelerated ripening, and dark colours. Natural acidity across the Pinot blocks was surprisingly high. Fruit was hand sorted in both vineyard and winery. There is an incredible structure to the 19 vintage Pinots.

Hand picked, all fruit is chilled overnight to 12 deg Celsius.
Indigenous yeast.
Fermented in small oak fermenters. The 115 was fermented as 100% whole bunch, while the MV6 was destemmed, soaked cold for 5 days, then allowed to warm gently into a wild ferment.
All parcels were matured in French oak – 25% new, 75% older – for 8 months in 225L barriques.
Racked to blend, no fining, no filtration.
Bottled by gravity.
