Description

WINEMAKING NOTE:

The 2013 Portage Pinot Noir was made from fruit grown in our four Estate Prince Edward County vineyards, and each was block was harvested, processed and aged individually. The grapes were hand- picked and gently destemmed, before being fermented in small lots in the cellar. Following fermentation the wine flowed by gravity to French oak barriques, 25% of which were new. The wine remained in barriques for ten months, at which time the final blend was decided upon. Following settling and coarse filtration, the wine was bottled in August of 2014. 

TASTING NOTE:

Strawberry, raspberry and red cherry aromas lead the way on the nose, with hints of sweet spice and tomato leaf in the background. Freshly crushed ripe berries continue on the palate, with dried leaf, minerality and spice in the background. The mouthfeel is agreeably lean and silky smooth, with very fine tannin and great County acidity.

"This is a very pale garnet pinot. This captures a lovely, lifted nose of strawberry/cherry fruit with some foresty notes, cedar and gentle smoke. This is very tasty, light to mid-weight with a trace of sweetness, lovely fruit, easy tannin and very good length. Nice winemaking here. Best now to 2018. Tasted Sept 2015"

Connoisseur Note(s):

"A very pale, fine-grained and delicate, wild strawberry-scented County pinot, full of finesse and lacy delicacy, for fans of subtlety and refinement. I love the filigree texture and the perfumed finish. Tasted September 2015. Value Rating: **"
