2021 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 13.2% ALC/VOL
Pinot Noir


Pinot Noir grapes harvested from long-standing growers for Gray Monk within the northern and central Okanagan Valley. The Pinot Noir grapes underwent traditional red wine making, 10 months aging in 2 and 3-year-old French oak barrels for added complexity, and a full malolactic fermentation to soften the mouthfeel.

This Pinot Noir has a bright ruby red colour and a bouquet of red cherry and red currant fruit, accented by notes of smoke, earth and oak. The elegant frame is supported by soft tannins and food-friendly acidity. Juicy cherry, red plum and red berry flavours evolve on the palate. Notes of red currant, pomegranate, cranberry, earth and spice linger on the finish.

A wonderful sipping wine or serve with cold beef wraps; grilled beef tenderloin; holiday turkey dinner with wild mushroom stuffing and cranberries; veal or eggplant parmesan; meat sauce or mushroom lasagna; gourmet red sauce pizzas; cold duck breast salad; roasted tomato and eggplant ragu over pasta; roasted spaghetti squash tossed with tomato sauce and Parmigiano Reggiano. For a fruit-forward mouth-feel, serve at a cool room temperature of 15 to 17C.
