This wine is only ever made in the occurrence of an exceptional growing season. Overall moderate temperatures that lead to even ripening, and the absence of extreme weather events, typify these seasons. A portion of the oldest part of the Dexter vineyard (clone MV6), which is consistently of the highest quality in the vineyard, provides the fruit for this wine. Taking inspiration from some of the best pinot noir producers in Burgundy, a different winemaking technique (whole-bunch fermentation) is employed in the winery. The result is a wine that still displays the fundamental characteristics of the Dexter site, whilst adding extra layers of spice, forest floor, tannin and overall complexity. So far, only two vintages (2015 and 2018) have proven adequate to make this wine. Production will always be limited (2-4 barrels) so as to not take away from the traditional Dexter pinot.
The goal of this wine is to maintain the personality of the Dexter vineyard whilst showcasing a different style of winemaking. What is clear when looking at the Dexter Black and White label pinots side by side is that great wine is made in the vineyard, irrespective of winemaking technique.
