Tasting Notes

This wine was featured in the monthly Wine Club in February 2017.


Geographical Indication: Okanagan Valley, B.C.

Vineyard: Estate Vineyard

Cases Produced: 420


Appearance: Clear, pale purple core becoming slightly brick red towards rim.

Nose: Italian plum and plenty of soft berry fruit: raspberries, strawberries, blackberries; slightly perfumed. 

Palate: Lightweight and buoyant with stewed raspberries and blueberries, caramelized orange rind, roasted Red Have peach, nutmeg, and very light tannins. 

Quality: A high-quality, bright and elegant Pinot Noir that’s lively with juicy acidity and just enough tannic structure to make it suitable for bolder dishes like braised meats. 

Food pairings: Wild mushroom risotto, fried chicken, barbecued salmon, cassoulet, pan-seared duck breast.


Wine Writer’s Comment:

What a pretty Pinot Noir we have here! While it’s not uncommon for summer temperatures in the Okanagan Valley to get into the high-thirties, which allows a hearty ripeness to grapes on the vine – the presence of Lake Okanagan allows for climate moderation, along with nights that can get outright chilly. It’s due to these conditions that we can have a Pinot Noir like Ann Sperling’s 2015 edition that’s chock-a-block with concentrated berry fruit, yet it retains enough natural acidity and loftiness to make it fresh as a daisy. Extra points to the winemaking team for not getting too heavy-handed with vinicultural trickery in the winery; standing back and just letting the fruit do its thing has worked wonders.
