This pinot is 100% estate grown. It is a barrel selection of Brad and Nathan's favorite barrels in the cellar. The Bon Sauvage is always a little more earth and sprice driven in character. This pinot is 100% native fermentation and macerates for 24 days before being pressed in our wood basket press. It then ages for 16 months in barrel before bottling.
