A new world style Pinot Noir featuring bright red fruit including notes of raspberries, cherries, and strawberries, with some earthiness following through on the nose. A light to medium-bodied wine with lingering red fruit flavours and a soft and smooth finish on the palate.
Grapes sourced from Naramata Bench, Okanagan
100% Pinot Noir
The grapes in this Pinot Noir were hand-picked early in the season at optimal ripeness. The grapes were destemmed and crushed and allowed to cold soak for 2 days before inoculating with a Burgundy yeast strain. Gentle extraction by doing three pump overs a day during fermentation. The wine was then aged for 9 months in neutral French and American oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
The Pinot Noir pairs well with smoked salmon, grilled chicken, creamy based pastas, or mushroom risotto.
