Description

BERRIES VERY BERRY

Striking berry red in colour. Look not for sheer buttkicking audacity; rather a lean and clean chassis with a soft perfumed nose that floats tart raspberry, strawberry, red currant, cherry, plum, cranberry components. With very laid back oak treatment (10 per cent new oak), the recurring berry fruit flavours are garnished with faint floral notes, orange peel and cocoa powder upon aeration in the glass while the acidity provides definition to the textured finish. Aged for 12 months in French oak, 10% new.

Food Pairings: Smoked, grilled or lightly charred Earthy flavours - mushrooms, root vegetables, lentils, garlic. Asian Cuisine - sweet salt combos such as peking duck, hoisin glazed pork roast. Fish - tuna, swordfish and salmon. Cheese - brie, aged goat, aged cheddar.

Tasting Notes

The 2016 vintage was a featured wine in June's Wine Club package, 2018.

 

Geographical Indication:  Prince Edward County, ON

Vineyard:  Various Niagara vineyards, ON

Cases Produced: 250

 

Appearance:  Bright. Semi-opaque. Ruby core, lighter rim.

Nose:  Medium+ aromatic intensity. Ripe red cherry, plum, raspberry, strawberry, black pepper, earth after a rainfall.

Palate:  Medium acid, medium tannin, and medium body. Red cherry, plum, red berries, hint of black pepper, baking spice.

Quality:  Very good quality. This is a gorgeous Pinot with ripe red fruit bounding out of the glass. Still young, the tannins are a bit stiff. Two to three years in the cellar will integrate the tannins and add more complexity to the wine.

Food Pairing:  Grilled salmon, Portobello mushroom burgers, roasted red beets and leaves, beef Bulgogi, sweet and sour chicken with fried rice, saucy ribs with a tangy BBQ sauce.
