Cropped from a specific half-acre of the Merricks Grove vineyard, Terre de Feu (the land of fire) takes its name from the vein of pure red ferrosol soils of this plot. Several years ago, Barney noticed that the vines in this ironstone buttonhole were producing slightly smaller bunches, yielding wines of greater depth and concentration than the surrounding vineyard. Thus, in 2013 the decision was taken to produce this micro-cuvée. The power of the fruit enables a 100% whole-bunch ferment—Terre de Feu remains Garagiste’s only Pinot to be made this way. It spends 24 days on skins, followed by 10 months in 33% new oak. It is the most powerful and structured Pinot that Garagiste produces.
