Production of the Blanc de Noirs started in 2018, so this marks the second release. Peter Dredge explains that Pinot Noir takes on lees characters quicker than its Chardonnay counterpart, so his Blanc de Noirs will always be released from a more recent vintage than the Blanc de Blancs. The fruit is sourced from a northeast-facing block with sandy soils over coffee rock on a rolling, five-degree slope in the Far Horse Vineyard.
This release was vinified in stainless steel, and Pete only extracted the cream of the crop, utilising just 300 litres of juice per tonne in production (the norm is 500-550 litres). The wine spent three years on lees before being disgorged with three grams per litre dosage.
