Grown on one site but several different soil types and different terraces around the property provided the blending options to make a focused and elegant wine. With Pinot Noir it’s about intensity so the crop is shoot thinned early in the season, followed by a green thin at veraison – by hand for precision. The use of both machine and hand plucking gave the fruit good exposure to take advantage of autumn heat and ripen phenolics. Fruit was hand harvested over nine days with seven passes through the vineyard.
The Insight Sauvignon Blanc is grown on three sites within in the vineyard, each with a slightly different soil profile. This variation means the vines behave slightly differently, producing different characters from area to area. This variation in flavour profile adds complexity and more than one dimension to the wine. As well as different soil types, the viticultural team deploy different pruning techniques which influences yield from vine to vine. Yield bearing affects how the vine behaves, which ultimately influences the flavours the vine creates. This variation also adds complexity and texture to the Insight wine.
