The Reserve Pinot Noir is sourced purely from Ashton Hills' five preferred clones. The fruit is de-stemmed via a small, customised, gentle de-stemmer that keeps as many whole berries as possible. After ferment, the fruit is then basket pressed, and the wine is made without any additions until bottling. Some whole bunches are included, and the percentage varies according to the style of the vintage. The Pinot is then matured in a combination of old and new French barriques prior to bottling.
