Winemaker's Notes
"Aromas of white fleshed stonefruit and fresh pear, with a little nougat and a hint of mandarin peel. On the palate, a pure, focussed wine with delicacy of structure, finishing crisp and dry. Stonefruit and pear flavours dominate, followed by some light citrus fruit. Will age gracefully over the next ten years."

Technical Notes
"About half of the fruit was machine harvested in cool evening conditions, destemmed and lightly pressed with minimal skin contact. Clear, cold-settled free-run juice from this fraction was fermented in stainless steel vats at low temperatures. The other portion was hand harvested and whole cluster pressed, and the cuvee juice fermented at low temperature with grape solids retained, to impart a rounder texture. 13.5% alc."

2013 Astrolabe Pinot Noir
Honestly not initially our favorite Pinot, and then some months later we were knocked out by the evolution. Gone was a rather too bracing astringency and zowie was it replaced by delectable dark cherry and plum flavors with a perfect balance of acidity. Yummy!
