Tasting note: the nose demonstrates earthy herbal and dark fruit characters with hints of undergrowth. The focused palate is concentrated with succulent dark fruits layered over smoky oak and fine mouth-coating tannins. Vintage: minimal frosts during the spring and perfect flowering conditions resulted in a good crop and even berry set. A warm early summer initially but temperatures cooled after solstice to give a long ripening period with stable conditions until the end of the first week of april. Heavy rain followed but caused no problems at the estate. Vineyard: certified organic fruit was hand-picked from two of our biodynamic vineyards. All of the fruit came from different sections within our raupo creek vineyard where the soils are rich and clay-based. Winemaking: fruit was hand-sorted and destemmed and cooled.

Pinot noir is responsible for the wine's soft texture and forward fruitiness while the chardonnay contributes structure and elegance.

Since its birth with the 1999 vintage this has proved to be our most popular wine. It is poured in top restaurants across the country in canada the uk and has even shown up on the lists of a top restaurant group in australia. (i have no idea how it got to australia). We produce more of it than any other wine we make by far but it never seems to be enough. The reason for its success is pretty simple. We make all of our pinot noirs with the same goal in mind: to be the best that they can be. Just before bottling we taste through all of the barrels grade them and write tasting notes. The results are put into a spreadsheet (my writing is so miserable even i can't read it most of the time) and then make decisions on what might be the best vineyard blends. However it is not just about quality. The vineyard wines must reflect the terroir (voice) of each site. Sometimes the best barrels have such a loud voice that they drown out the other elements.

Our 2012 les voisins pinot noir embodies the elegant characteristics of this varietal from anderson valley: earth and spice on the nose red fruit with silky tannins on the palate. A medium bodied pinot noir with bright acidity this wine may be enjoyed for several years to come. Vineyard notes: derived from the deep end of anderson valley which is the coolest end of the 18 mile long stretch the fruit for this wine hails primarily from neighboring vineyards. These sites bear a preponderance of dijon and california heritage clones. Altitude and proximity to the ocean combined with a high concentration of sandstone provide optimal growing conditions for pinot noir. Vintage notes: the 2012 vintage was a welcome relief following the challenges of 2010 and 2011. A wet winter was balanced by a moderate slightly dry spring with bud break and veraison occurring several weeks later than usual.
