Description

Field Atlas reflects Noble Hill’s deep connection with the soils of the Simonsberg.  It is a unique blend that begins in their estate vineyards. They field blend and co-ferment Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache Noir, & Viognier. Each vineyard is carefully selected for compatibility. Each vineyard’s unique elevation, aspect, and soil gives them flexibility in creating a harmonious, cohesive, and delicate wine.

At harvest, fruit is hand-sorted, lightly crushed, and cold soaked to allow the flavours and colours in the grapes’ skins to soak into the wine gently and naturally. A significant proportion of whole clusters are added to the fermentation for partial carbonic maceration. The wine is oxygenated daily via remontage and délestage before being racked into large format concrete tanks and 225l French oak barrels at the end of primary fermentation. The wine is matured for 18 months before bottling.
