Made from Pinot Noir grapes grown on the Scribe Estate on the south-west facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain. Harvested early in the season when fruit is full of the bright, high-toned acidity. 100% whole cluster direct pressed, followed by a long, cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve vibrant aromatics. Energetic and fruit forward on the nose with a dry finish.
