Blended from the best Lofty Vineyard blocks, the MV6, 114, 115 and 777 clones were fermented separately after 14 days cool soaking. Following Burgundian hot ferments to 30+ degrees, plunged twice daily, 35 % new oak for 12months. Unfined, unfiltered, minimal sulfites, triple racked with no other additions. The ’13 Lofty Pinot Noir has a restrained tight nose, showing dark forest fruits, charcuterie, swiss brown mushrooms and candied strawberry. The palate has bright red fruits, plum and campari, with lingering velvety tannins of soft stalk and skin well integrated. The Lofty will develop over the next 10-12 years.
