2017 is possibly one of the most elegant and refined Niagara Pinots we’ve made to date. The emphasis is on delicacy and finesse.
The fruit was sourced from two beautiful clay/ limestone-based sites on & just below the Bench on the Niagara Peninsula. While the colour and alcohol level appear light, there is a lovely richness and amazing length, finishing with the most refined & pure tannins we’ve seen to date. Comes in at a beautiful 11.5% alcohol.
I’ve always believed that great Nebbiolo and Pinot Noir can be almost identical twins. This Pinot fits this description particularly when it comes to the beautiful and refined tannins. Light, medium- bodied. A red wine that’s not too heavy to go with poultry, and perfect for red meat dishes. Enjoyable to drink now and will age another 4-6 years.
