- Growing Season
To look at just the numbers it could be concluded that 2010 was a warm growing season, but the timing of winds and cold weather were critical in defining the season and thus the wine in this bottle. A cold November let to a slow flowering so fruit was not set until early December. Summer was hot but winds reduced sunlight accumulation and wore out basal leaves by early autumn. This gave the ripening fruit ample access to soft autumn light and enabled us to pick fruit with delicate fruit flavours and lovely structure.

Pale ruby colored with a hint of purple, the 2010 Pinot Noir is scented of ripe cherries freshly crushed raspberries and pomegranate with hints of violets, tree bark and underbrush. Light-bodied and delicately flavored with a lovely purity of red berry and earthy notes, it has crisp acid and a low level of silky tannins, finishing long. Drink this one now to 2016+.
