Slowhand is an iron fist in a velvet glove; it delivers great power yet is seamless and smooth. The late-ripening fruit is full of heady plum and blueberry characters, and the textural and length elements are exemplary – the feel of velvet and persistence is unrivalled. Slowhand is our rarest Pinot Noir; it's not made every year and is made in small batches only.

The fruit is hand-picked in early morning to allow for natural cold soaking. Typically this block is destemmed entirely although in some years we might use a little whole bunch. The fruit is inspected in the field and sorted a second time by winery crew to select only the most perfectly ripe fruit. Fermentation is kicked off by naturally occurring wild yeast. Our small fermenters are hand plunged daily before a gentle pressing to French oak barrels. The final product is bottled without need for fining or filtration.

Deep red cherry colour with a nose of lifted florals, blue and black berries, spice and rich plum.  The palate is sensual and textual.  Initial restrained power unfolds and build to a long and lively length with integrated tannins and savoury French oak.
