Tasting Notes

An elegant bouquet showing classic aromas of black cherry, wild raspberry and savoury beetroot. The palate is rich and silky with moderate tannins finishing with a hint of dark chocolate. We wanted this Pinot Noir to showcase the elegant character of Niagara Pinot without showing excessive oak influence. Pair with smoked salmon, beet and goat cheese salad. Roast turkey with sage stuffing, grilled pork tenderloin and braised lamb dishes.

Technical Notes

Crushed to tank where it was cold soaked for 3 days before it was inoculated for fermentation. It was macerated on skins for 10 days and aged in older French oak barrels and demi-muids for 10 months before being racked and filtered for bottling.

Reviews

A pleasantly firm and grippy, dark fruit-led pinot with firm grippy tannins and pronounced acids - I appreciate the honest rusticity here, the genuine pinot character. Revisit this in 2-3 years, should be a fine expression, especially for the price - terrific value in the pinot category.” 89pts - John Szabo, Wine Align An engaging, amiable and attractive pinot noir. Well-priced, lightweight but not light on flavour. Lovely perfume, violets, red licorice, bright cherry and touch of leather entice on the nose. Slightly drying tannins provide structure on the palate. Nicely ripened, harmonious and with a touch of pleasant lift. Cola and cherry linger on the finish of very good length.” 89pts Sara d'Amato, Wine Align
