Soils: Limestone + Clay in one

parcel, Grey Slate in another

Age of vines: 30 yrs average

Viticulture: Organic (certified)

Vineyards: One half of the

grapes came from the Paradies

vineyard which is behind the

winery. A flatter vineyard on

limestone + a bit of clay in the

upper layer. This produces

a fuller, rounder expression

of Pinot Noir. The second

half came from the Letterlay

vineyard which is on a slope

and on grey slate. The grapes

here are quite different,

producing Pinot Noir with more

tension, less ripeness, more

elegance perhaps.

Vinification: The grapes

are destemmed and then

fermented in open steel vats.

Fermentation lasted around

18 days but the grapes stayed

on the skins for 4 weeks. After

pressing the wine is then

transferred to a 1000L Fuder

(40-yr old oak barrel) where

it ages for 12 months prior to

bottling. Unfined, unfiltered,

zero added sulphur.
