VINTAGE DESCRIPTION:

WINEMAKING:

The grapes were handpicked off both our Lake Country and Vernon vineyard site in October. After whole berry fermented in stainless tanks, the 2015 Pinot Noir was then aged  9 months in100% French oak, 20% new oak barrels.

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of ripe red plums and Okanagan cherries are followed by bursts of berry jam and white flowers on the palate.  This Pinot Noir has delicate silky tannins, hints of sweet thyme, nutmeg and white pepper bounce throughout the finish.  9 months in French Oak, which add smooth aromas of vanilla bean and white caramel.
