Mammoth Pinot Noir is made using fruit from a small area of organically tended vines in the heavy clays of beautiful Moutere, in the South Island of NZ. The vines were planted in 2004 with Clone 5, also known as 'Pommard'. The vineyard is dry grown and gained its organic certification in 2011. The gravel studded clay of this terroir is low in fertility but has the advantage of retaining enough moisture through the summer months to avoid the need for supplementary irrigation. Natural ferment and 100% whole bunches, the wine also spent an additional six months in barrel; in total one year in 1/3 new Ana Sélection hogsheads (a super-premium Tronçais barrel used by Nicole Lamarche and Arnaud Mortet for example) and then a further 12 months in older barriques.
