Pressing Matters is a small, family-owned Tasmanian vineyard producing award-winning Rieslings and Pinot Noir. 

Their Pinot Noir is unique in that they have over 18 different clone and rootstock combinations in the vineyard. Each combination has subtle but noticeable differences both in growth and flavours. Some will have larger bunches, some smaller, some grow upright, some like to flop. Some rootstocks are more tolerant of drought, others are not. Each combination has a different way of expressing the terroir of the vineyard; therefore each is picked by hand, and processed separately from the others. The wine is then stored in 100% French oak for 9-10 months before being bottled. This provides the winery with 18 different wines that they taste individually and blend into the final wine.

Hand-picked and sorted, destemmed not crushed, 20% whole bunches included, 2-3 days cold soak, hand-plunged, matured for 10 months in oak. - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion, 94 Points
