2014 Holyman Project X Pinot Noir


Sold out.  Project X is a wine that is 100% whole bunch and goes into 100% new French oak.  We first made it in 2010, and the fruit for this wine comes from the coolest part of our vineyard.  The fruit is all selectively picked for the lignification or ripeness of the stalks.  It is a small ferment but takes about two days of meticulous selection to pick the fruit.  Following the natural ferment, this wine is basket pressed into one new 500L French oak puncheon.

There are dark cherries and cranberries on the nose - which follow through to the palate.  These are complemented by supple tannin from the whole bunch ferment and a whisp of new oak.  Long and tight this wine really needs a few more years in the bottle before starting to show it's best.
