The 2 younger blocks of Dijon clones 115 and 777, planted in 2006, were harvested on the 31st of March and the 3 older blocks of Dijon clones 114, 115 and 777, planted in 2003, were harvested on the 8th of April.

30% of each of the 5 clonal Pinot Noir blocks at Foggy Hill was hand harvested in shallow trays and chilled overnight to 2ºC in a cold room at the Tapanappa winery. The balance of each block was hand harvested the next day. The 30% of chilled whole bunches were distributed in the bottom of each of the 0.9 tonne fermentation tubs and the balance of unchilled grapes were destemmed, partially roller crushed, and chilled to 2ºC, onto the top of the whole bunches.

The fermentation tubs were sealed down for a 4-day cold maceration. The fruit composition was naturally perfect.

After 4 days our own selected yeast and malo-lactic bacteria strains were added to each fermenter to start fermentation. Each tub was hand plunged everyday of the 12-day fermentation, the temperature reaching 33ºC at the peak of fermentation. The whole bunches were progressively crushed during the plunging process to release all of their sugar.

When the fermentation had exhausted all of the sugar the tubs were sealed down again for a 5-day post-fermentation maceration on skins. The whole process in fermentation tub takes 21 days.

The fermentation tubs were tipped into the air bag press and gently drained and pressed straight to French oak barriques, 30% new. The wine went through the malo-lactic fermentation on full lees over the next two months at the end of vintage.

In January 2018, the 2017 Foggy Hill Pinot Noir was clear racked from barrique and bottled in February 2018.
