Swings and roundabouts. From the viticultural (if no other) point of view, 2021 was a very, very good year. But instead of 50 of our closest friends blitzing the picking in 6 hours, it fell to a small but determined band of stalwarts. Took three long days. We got in just under 6 tonnes of the cleanest fruit at 13.3 degrees Baume. After bleeding off a little juice to make Rose, the rest of the Pinot went through fermentation perfectly and is now resting safely in barrel.
