Winemaker’s comments
Grapes for this Pinot Noir were selected by the winemakers and fermented in open-top fermenters, hand plunged and with wild yeasts. The wine was matured for 12 months in French oak barrels with 20% new oak.
Will reward by cellaring 4-8 years.

Mathilde is the name of the firstborn daughter of winemakers, Brook and Lucie Lawrence.
