100% Pinot Noir; this is a four barrel blend from select barrels of the Roadblock and Slope, with some of the Quarry for complexity, all located in the Weka Pass region of North Canterbury.
The handling on skins is the same as for the Bell Hill Pinot Noir, and the French oak was also 100% new. The wine was racked and blended after 12 months in barrel, it had 6 months in tank. Only 1,056 bottles were produced.
The aromas are vibrant and spicy with savoury forest-floor undertones. Crunchy fruit on the palate with texture, mineral flavours, and earthy tones. A long finish, sinewy tannins accompanied by supple, fleshy fruit.
