Description

Tasting Notes

Made from grapes primarily from our estate vineyard in Lillooet, this Pinot Noir is aged in French oak barrels. This elegant, unfiltered wine has notes of cherries and berries with a hint of pepper. It is complex with a lingering finish, and pairs perfectly with grilled salmon or game birds.

Winemaker Notes

Made from 74% estate-grown Pinot Noir. 26% of the fruit used in the 2016 Pinot was sourced from “The Rise Vineyard” in Vernon. It was aged in French oak barrels including 30% new oak for 9 months. The 2016 vintage yielded a very generous crop. Higher yields in conjunction with a long summer allowed the fruit to ripen slowly and over a longer period. These two factors are cardinal in producing fantastic Pinot Noir. This wine is naturally unfined and unfiltered. It may appear hazy and it may contain natural sediments.
