Origin

First planted in 1999, the Lenswood vineyard combines high altitude (455 to 500 metres above sea level), mature vines, and diverse aspects, including cool east and south facing blocks on soils of brown loam over clay with some broken shale. Following significant investments to improve the vineyard since its acquisition by Shaw + Smith in 2012, it is a great source for wines that can stand alone as single vineyard releases, with the balance to reward ageing.

Grape Variety

100% Pinot Noir

The grapes were hand picked and hand sorted, before being tipped into open fermenters, either as whole bunches (around 30%) or destemmed whole berries. Long, gentle fermentation and maceration followed, then 14 months in French oak puncheons, of which one third were new. The wine is unfiltered and unfined.

Alcohol Percentage

13%
