Only the very best grapes from vineyards in the well renowned Bannockburn area are selected to produce this ‘Earth and Sky’ Pinot Noir 2021. This wine is a blend of two Bannockburn vineyards ranging from 12 to 21 years old. Both sites border the Bannockburn Sluicings, a distinctive geographic landmark that is steeped in mining history. The grapes from these vineyards were fermented separately with a range of 0-25% whole clusters with the resulting blend having around 18% whole clusters which aids the tannin structure and aromatics of the wine. The total time on skins ranges from 21-28 days. The wine was aged for approximately 12 months in fine grain French oak barriques with 24% new and the rest ranging from 2-5 years old.
