The 2012 Ten Barrels Pinot Noir is a single vineyard wine displaying the elegance, power and grace generated by our Gibbston Back Road Vineyard site.

The 2012 vintage was warm, encouraging perfect ripeness in all our fruit, while retaining great levels of complexity and subtlety in the cooler Gibbston sub-region.

This wine is blended from two clones planted next to each other; Clone 5 and Clone 6. They were co-fermented in one 7- tonne fermenter and remained on skins for 24 days.

Of the ten barrels selected, three were new oak. Malo-lactic fermentation took place in the Spring; mid-Summer the ten barrels were selected, and set aside for a further five months maturation before bottling without fining or filtration (some deposit may occur in the bottle).
