2022 Pinot Noir RESERVE FOR END OF MAY

2022 Pinot Noir RESERVE FOR END OF MAY

Selected from the best hillside blocks from our vineyards, the Pinot Noir fruit that is destined for red wine is handled with the upmost care consistent with premium Pinot Noir production around the globe. Volumes are low to keep quality high. A light and vibrant expression of coastal Pinot Noir with a depth of flavour and complexity that impresses the most discerning of drinker. Aromas of cherry, dried strawberry with notes of dried leaves and subtle spice are complimented by flavours of dark cherry hallmark to Vancouver Island Pinot Noir.

Tasting Notes
Bright cherry, violet, and baking spices on the nose give way to a palate full of wild berries and earthy, forest floor notes.
Vineyard Notes
The Pinot Noir for our 2022 vintage comes from Saison Vineyard, Unsworth Vineyard and Zanatta Vineyard.
Production Notes
The fruit is destemmed whilst leaving the berries intact. Maceration occurs largely by pumping over the tanks, but with a few punchdowns if needed. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is pressed to barriques of varying age with very little new oak in the program.
Food Pairing Notes
Beautiful on its own or paired with salmon, duck, pork, and mushroom dishes. Unsworth Pinot Noir also proves perfect with Alpindon, an alpine style cheese, from Kootenay Meadows.
