Pinot Noir 2013 Feature – 6 Bottles


91 Points – Rick VanSickle,, April 13, 2018

“20% of the Pinot for this wine was dried for the final blend, which then spent 20 months in French oak. It’s not like other Niagara Pinot Noirs and does not pretend to be. It’s a bolder, riper version that gets its complexity from the appassimento method of winemaking that is this winery’s signature. Once you understand that, you can appreciate this lovely bolder style wine with its nose of spicy red fruits, cloves, nutmeg, plums, bramble and cassis fruit. It cuts deep on the palate with complex flavours that run the gamut from dark cherry to juicy cassis and plums all backed up by layers of baking spices, solid structure and ripe tannins.”

Pinot Noir 2013

Tasting Notes:
Intense nose of dried fruit, ripe red cherry, raspberry, and ripe black figs. Delicious flavours of dried fruit, brandied plums and baking spices follow through with great balance and silky smooth tannins, all with a long, elegant finish.

Winemaker Notes:
The grapes were hand harvested and sorted with 20% of the grapes being dried in the appassimento style. The wine was aged for 20 months on lees in select oak barrels before bottling and further bottle aging in the winery’s cellar.

Wine and Food Pairing:
Incredible with roast chicken and fresh shiitake and crimini mushrooms and dried porcini mushroom stuffing, cedar plank salmon with baby red potato salad and fresh asparagus, and mushroom risotto with freshly shaved parmesan. Also, a perfect accompaniment with hard and soft cheese and a charcuterie platter.
