Description

Delicate maraschino cherry, melon, pear, citrus and apple blossom touch the nose. Vibrant with a fresh salinity, the wine tastes of strawberry, cranberry, pink grapefruit and lime.

Harvest: Estate-grown Pinot Noir was hand-picked at the cool temperature of daybreak, September 13th to 16th, as grape sugars averaged 20.5 ° Brix.

Vinification: The grapes were pressed in whole clusters immediately after picking. The juice was chilled in a horizontal stainless-steel tank prior to cool-fermentation and settling and was bottled in December 2018.

This is a blend of Pinot from estate vineyards and Mottiar Vineyard made in a similar way to the wine above. It’s a slighter darker hue of pale salmon and has “more colour than I expected,” says Mottiar. The 2018 vintage has a bit less colour than previous vintages across the board for Niagara reds. This is a bit bolder on the nose, but still pretty, with more cherry, raspberry and cranberry aromas and underlying citrus and herbs. It’s juicier and bolder on the palate with a range of red berries and a similar dry, refreshing finish.

Connoisseur Note(s):

This pale salmon pinot noir based rose shows a delicate nose of red currant, sour cherry and subtle herbs. It is light on its feet, tart-edged and indeed very much vivant (living) on the palate. Bone dry with a rhubarb/currant and grapefruit finish. It will quench nicely. The length is very good. Tasted July 2019
