This fine-grained Pinot Noir from Oregon's much-admired Willamette Valley resembles a parcel of red fruits tied up with silk ribbon: strawberries, redcurrant, rhubarb and raspberry, with a dollop of honey and a silky finish.

Food Matching: Great with roasted or braised dishes and very good with game.
Vinification: The grapes are sourced from 5 vineyards representing 3 sub-appellations of the Willamette Valley, on a mix of volcanic/basalt, marine sediment and silty clay loam from 3 and 32 year old vines. Hand-harvesting begins in October before a cold soak as well as an inoculated post cold soak using multiple yeast types. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel before pressing using a mechanical basket press. The wine is then aged in 228L French oak barrels (mix of new and old) for 10 months. Before release, the wine is kept for a further 8 months.
