We grow five different clones of Pinot Noir grapes in our home vineyard. This vintage is a combination of grapes from all five clones, aged in French oak barrels made by a variety of coopers. The result is layers of flavours: ripe cherries and raspberries, plus savoury elements with subtle earth tones. Match a bottle with a messy pulled pork sandwich, salmon, or slow roast beef.

Our 2013 Pinot Noir was fermented for just under two weeks at a modest 20 degrees Celsius, and then skin soaked for an additional four days. Aged in our old winey building, this wine reminds us of our humble beginnings and heartwarming passion. This Pinot Noir clearly reflects the potential for growing this varietal in Lillooet. It has depth in its colour and complexity on the palate. It was aged in French oak barrels for nine months and bottle cellared for another eleven months prior to release.
Food Pairing Notes
This Pinot Noir can do it all. Pair it with meat, fish, pizza, pasta (rich or light) or even a lunch sandwich.
Wine is approaching its peak, but can be cellared until 2020-2022
