Made from grapes sourced from The Pawn Wine Co.'s vineyards which experience warm days and cool nights, ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir.

Aromas of cherry cola, rose petals and spice erupt from the glass. On the palate, the wine reveals a berry fruit explosion of black cherry and cranberry, with touches of balsamic and earth tones.

Vinification details

Prior to fermentation, the grapes were left on skins for two days, then wild fermented dry over the next 10 days with 10% whole bunch, in an open top fermenter. The ferment was hand plunged twice a day, with the temperature peaking at 32ºC . Post ferment, the wine remained on skins for 4 days, after which it was pressed into a mix of new and old (10% : 90%) French oak puncheons (500L) for malolactic fermentation and maturation of 6 months. The wine was bottled in late September 2018.
