Hand-harvested and hand-sorted on the 12th of September, 2017. The 2017 Cuvée Kaela Pinot Noir was a blend of Blocks 4 (Selection ‘S’) and Block 1 (Selection “R”). Fermented with 100% native yeasts and 100% whole cluster in concrete tanks. This wine was pressed ≤15 days post harvest. For all intensive purposes, a combination of pumpovers, punchdowns and delestage are used, however the vintage dictates just how many or few we decide to impart. Free-run was drained overnight and press kept separate. Elevage was in a combination of 600L and 228L barrels as well as Stainless Steel for 29 months sur lie.
