An exceptional Pinot noir, named after famed Swedish naturalist and explorer Anders Sparrman who embodies our spirit of adventure and discovery and our commitment to preserving and protecting the abundant natural resources of the area. Expressive of piquant red berry flavours with earthy undertones this serious wine has a savoury richness and firm tannins that will allow for cellaring of up to 10 years.

After careful observation of the performance of our different clones on their different soil types over the past 10 years, we finally discovered that the vines growing on the lower slope in a deeper soil with red clay content showed more color and structure, with the promise to produce an exceptional full and rich wine with dark berry fruit notes.

Specially selected grapes was whole berry crushed into an open fermenter. After a few days of skin contact, we inoculated with a selected yeast strain. The wine was fermented between 23 and 28°C with punch downs twice a day. Once dry, the open fermenter was closed and the wine was left on the skins for extended maceration.

After maceration the wine was racked and pressed, followed by 11 months barrel maturation in 300 liter French oak barrels from Burgundian coopers (40% first-fill, the remainder second and third-fill).

Food pairing

Pairs well with either a delicate, poached salmon or a rich, braised duck breast.
