in the vineyard : Sourced from single vineyard in the higher lying area of Elgin. Cooler climate with more slate, sandstone and quartz soil types which drives a more elegant style and textured wine.
When compared to previous vintages, the 2017 Pinot Noir vintage has a modern edge. The drought meant that the winemaking team had more control over the growth and ripening of the vineyards, helping them to produce a fresher wine. In step with previous vintages, the 2017 wine offers floral and wild cherry notes.

in the cellar : Barrel ageing: 10 months, 3% new, 300L French Oak barrels
Bigger barrels, no new oak. The oldest barrel in the cellar is used for this wine, a barrel from 1998, Waterford Estates first vintage.
