THE PINNACLE OF OUR WINEMAKING
As with everything we do, uncompromising quality is paramount and 1086 is only produced in exceptional years. The blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, and the locations where they are harvested, can change from one vintage to another. A wine like 1086 is only possible because we harvest and ferment each parcel separately. With over 90 separate parcels in our vineyards, we can nurture and develop their nuanced flavours to create the ultimate expression of the estate.
1086 represents the best of the best from those parcels. The blend is hand-selected from our finest estate-grown wines and matured on their lees for at least five years in the traditional method. 1086 wines are characterised by their balance; acidity, length and texture are all beautifully judged and combine seamlessly on the palate.
