Description

Wine Profile: Pale ruby color with garnet tones. Subtle herbal cherry nose with spicy, earthy notes in the background. Elegant cherry fruit on the palate with spice box notes and earthy complexity, good tannin structure and fresh acidity.

Winemaking: Harvested October 9th at an average of 22° brix. Fermented in stainless steel, 28-day primary fermentation for extended maceration. Aged 30 months in neutral French oak barriques prior to bottling.

Vineyard: A temperate microclimate covers the region of Prince Edward County. It is also geographically distinct; the island lies on a bed of limestone gravel with fractured bedrock that was deposited on the edge of the Canadian Shield. The result is the perfect combination of climate and geography for growing vinifera grapes. Our 600-acre farm (60 acres under vine) is 5 km inland in the Hillier region making us a hotbed in Prince Edward County standards. The block containing our Pinot Noir was planted in 2001 and 2002, with clones 115, 667 and 777. Located on a site with southern exposures, and soils averaging a depth of 12-24”.

Only made in warmer vintages this is a selection of best barrels from the Diana Block. It showing maturity now, a fairly pale garnet-brick shaded pinot with gentle,complex aromas of sour cherry fitted with oak vanillin, vague leather and earthy aromas. It's light to medium bodied with a touch of sourness and woodsy, dusty tannin. Very good to excellent length. Now to 2018. Tasted April 2015
