Golden Retreat Vineyard in Summerland


Pinot Noir clones Pommard, 115 and 667 are separately hand harvested, destemmed to small batches and cold soaked for 5-7 days before fermentation by indigenous yeasts. The total time on skins is 16 to 21 days. After gentle pressing, the wine completes malolactic fermentation and is aged 13 months in French oak barrels (25% new). 

Tasting Notes

Full bodied structural wine with dark fruit, savoury notes, earthy spice, and fresh acidity in a fine balance. Drink now through 2030.


300 cases produced


 -   Closed nose with some black cherries, red fruits and oak.  Thicker mouthfeel with quite a floral, along with red fruit, raspberry and red cherry flavours with decanting.
* Karl Klip - My Wine Pal

 92 pts ♦ This is a full-bodied wine that will age well. It begins with dramatic aromas of cherry, dark fruits, earthy spice, even hints of red licorice. On the palate, the luscious fruits include plum and strawberry.
* John Schreiner on Wine

 90 pts ♦ Darker raspberry, black cherry, dark earth is carried on the medium-bodied, cool palate to a savoury, Worcestershire-scented finish. There's a welcome tart acidity to lift this easily to the finish making it very food-friendly. A lovely wine for duck or rabbit.
