Derived from the Windmill Vineyard, the W-WB Pinot Noir is 100% fermented as whole bunches and only released in appropriate years - this is the first release since the 2016 vintage. Hand-picked on March 20th the fruit was placed directly into two open fermenters, where it was sealed and left to ferment slowly within the bunches. After nearly 4 weeks, with piegage (foot stomping) occasionally applied, the fermenters were pressed to French oak puncheons for maturation. After 8 months, four puncheons (50% new) were selected and blended, with a portion used in the Windmill Vineyard and Reserve blends and the balance bottled as the 2019 W-WB.

Showing a real Pandora’s box of aromas, this is a wine which evolves every few minutes to reveal forever more, with everything from Indian five spice and mushrooms, to aromatic raspberry tea and a hints of sweet and spicy oak. The palate has a larger frame than most Pinots, with layers of fruit and spice as well as formidable oak and fruit tannins. A Pinot Noir that demands a large glass and some patience over the next ten years.
