Made from 74% estate grown Pinot noir. 26% of the fruit used in the 2016 Pinot was sourced from “The Rise Vineyard” in Vernon. The 2016 vintage yielded a very generous crop. Higher yields in conjunction with a long summer allowed the fruit to ripen slowly & over a longer period. These two factors are cardinal in producing fantastic Pinot noir.
All of our Pinot noir is aged in 228L French-oak barrels for 9 months. Bottled in August 2017, cellared for another 10 months and released in June 2018.
