Source

A combination of fruit from the Gentleman Farmer Vineyard in SE Kelowna & Golden Retreat Vineyard in Summerland.

Winemaking

Pinot Noir Clone 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 16-21 days. After a gentle press the wine completes malolactic fermentation and is aged 13 months in French oak barrels (25% new).  

Tasting Notes

Aromas of spiced plum, clove, sage and star anise on the nose. The palate displays more fruit; dark cherry, blueberry and blackberry. Well balanced, with soft, integrated tannin.

Enjoy now or cellar approximately 5 years.

Production

375 cases produced.

Awards

Reviews

 89. Appearance: Deeper ruby in colour than the 2019. Nose: Floral, cedary, raspberry bouquet with an undergrowth note. Palate: Medium-bodied, dry, smoky-tarry flavours of plum and oak spice with ripe tannins and balancing acidity. Quality: 89 points. Very Good+. Drink now but can be held 2 – 3 years. Food Pairing: Rigatoni with sausage and peppers, broccoli and cheddar casserole, butternut squash and black bean enchilada, bacon-stuffed mushrooms, and baked brie with sweet pepper jelly.  ~ Tony Aspler - My Wine Canada
