2020 Pinot Noir Coyote
Fruit sourced exclusively from West Kelowna Coyote Vineyard.
Pinot Noir clone 115 was hand harvested, destemmed into 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 in barrel and is aged 13 months in French oak (25% new).
This is an intensely perfumed wine with dark fruit aromas of cassis and blackberry followed by hints of dried oregano and clove. Earthy notes of leather and forest floor add to the complexity of this wine. Overall it is well-balanced with fine tannin and deep colour extraction.
Enjoy now or cellar up to 8 years.
