Made from grapes primarily from our estate vineyard in Lillooet, this Pinot Noir is aged in French oak barrels. This elegant, unfiltered wine has notes of cherries and berries with a hint of pepper. It is complex with a lingering finish, and pairs perfectly with grilled salmon or game birds.

Made from 74% estate-grown Pinot Noir. 26% of the fruit used in the 2016 Pinot was sourced from “The Rise Vineyard” in Vernon. It was aged in French oak barrels including 30% new oak for 9 months.
The 2016 vintage yielded a very generous crop. Higher yields in conjunction with a long summer allowed the fruit to ripen slowly and over a longer period. These two factors are cardinal in producing fantastic Pinot Noir. This wine is naturally unfined and unfiltered. It may appear hazy and it may contain natural sediments.
