Expect a fresh pinot character here with savoury, pine, almost Oregon undertones. The mix is clone 115 in Okanagan Falls and Osoyoos, and the Ritter clone form Okanagan Falls. Minimal winemaking, it spent about 15 months in old wood before bottling. Look for a spicy, ripe nose of red fruits - cherries and raspberries with a hint of cola in the back end. A pleasant easy-drinking style that would be perfect with a piece of grilled salmon. Good value.

Wine Writer’s Comment: A great Pinot that has some oomph to it! Aged 15 months in second-use French oak barrels on the lees, the wine is unfined and unfiltered, carrying plenty of character from that lees contact. A solid wine that will work for those who think Pinot Noirs are sometimes a little too wimpy, and also others who think they’re occasionally too extracted or sweet. The natural acidity provided by the Northern proximity of the Okanagan growing region makes for a fine balance, and a wine that also manages to straddle that line between Old World earthy, terroir-driven character, and the fruit forward power of a New World take on the grape. This will be a crowd pleaser for any impromptu get-togethers!
