All fruit is grown with tender loving care, cropped low for optimum flavour profile and hand harvested. The fruit is destemmed without crushing and each parcel transferred into separate small open top fermentors for a period of cold soaking before fermentation with regular hand plunging of the cap, then varying post fermentation warm soak before pressing off. The wine is then further matured in French oak barriques for 11-15 months.
- Dark, rich and sweet–fruited Central Otago Pinot, TattyBogler abounds on the nose with the flavours of black cherry, brambles, red plum and wild thyme.
- On the palate it offers plumy, bramble and savoury aromas, concentrated and complex with ripe tannins, gentle acidity and a delicate spiciness that weaves its way through the rich palate, all culminating in a long, satisfying finish.
