Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our estate-grown 2011 Pinot Noir is classic new world. Deep garnet in colour with aromas of fresh raspberry, ripe strawberry, caramel, and savory clove. Fruit driven, balanced with clean acidity. Tastes of blackberry, Bing cherry, pomegranate, dried wild herbs, and spice. Enjoy with pulled pork, blackened fish, or almost any grilled meat.
Winemaker Notes
The 2011 vintage was the first vintage using grapes from our estate vineyard. We harvested about 1.5 tons of Pinot Noir on Oct 19th 2011. The season had a cooler start, but summer was hot and dry creating ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir. With extremely low yields of less than 1 ton per acre, we were able to achieve fully ripe fruit with a modest level of sugar and nicely balanced acids. After primary and malolactic fermentation, the Pinot Noir was aged in French oak barrels for about 14 months. After bottling in March 2013, the wine was aged another 6 months in the bottle prior to release.
