"The harvest at Reimer, in northeast Kelowna, commenced 24.5 brix on Oct 6. This is handpicked pinot noir off a moderately steep northwesterly aspect of silt loam overlaying gravel loam. Simple winemaking entails a cold soak, indigenous fermentation and gentle hand plunging of the must. Like the Mclean Creek, it spends 11 months in French oak barrels, 27 percent new. The attack is rich and juicy with ebullient fruit spilling from the glass. A little less red and a little more black, the Reimer is hedonistic with a spicy savoury forest floor core to balance the finish. This can handle smoked fowl, or richer duck confit. Early 2016 looked a lot like 2015 with warm dry conditions, early budburst and a warm advanced harvest, but cool and wet weather brought all that to a halt in July extending the season back into a more normal and acceptable time frame for pinot noir maturation. A cooler harvest saw very little shrivel on the younger berries, and early September showers retreated, leaving a perfect fall finish." Anthony Gismondi
