We grow different clones of the Pinot Noir grape in our home vineyard; this wine is a
combination of all five, aged in French oak barrels made by a variety of coopers. The result is layers of flavours: raspberry, strawberry, and savory elements with subtle earth tones. Match a bottle with a messy pulled pork sandwich, char grilled salmon, or slow roast beef.

We harvested 11 tons of Pinot Noir on October 10th 2012. With low yields of 2.5 tons per acre, we were able to achieve fully ripe fruit with a good sugar levels (23 Brix) and nicely balanced acids. After primary and malolactic fermentation, the Pinot Noir was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. After bottling in February 2014, the wine was aged another 6 months in the bottle prior to release.
Wine is approaching its peak, but can be cellared until 2020-2022
