Pinot Noir can be a simple sip or a symphony of the senses, a moment of pleasure or an
eternity of contemplation. Only the poet can know, so stop thinking and surrender. ‘Velvet
Fog’ was produced from Elena’s best Adelaide Hills Vineyard in Kersbrook whose clones
and viticulture embody the very best in cutting edge but old school viticulture and
The bunches were hand harvested with half of them being destemmed and the remaining
portion fermented entirely whole-cluster. The fermentations occurred in small open-top
stainless-steel tanks and after 10 days on the skins the lots were basket-pressed to second
and third use French barriques. The wine aged for seven months without any additions and
was bottled without fining or filtration and just a small sulfur addition.
