An elegant and savoury Pinot Noir that shows a perfect balance of vibrant fruit and earthy non-fruit elements. It opens with dried rose petal, red cherry, and raspberry layered with fresh-picked mushroom, clove, and nutmeg. With a medium body, the mouthwatering crisp acidity and the refined tannins shape the palate framing the juicy red berries and subtle baking spices. A wine with brilliant aromatic complexity and flavour depth, and a lovely accompaniment to roasted duck breast with rhubarb, mustard, charred cabbage, and fingerling potatoes.
The 2022 growing season will be remembered for its very late start and remarkable finish which allowed for an abundance of quality grapes grown and fine wines produced. An uncharacteristically cool spring resulted in bud break occurring in early May. With delays in fruit development by as much as three weeks, careful vineyard management and cooperative conditions were needed to reach proper sugar levels and ideal natural acidity. The summer months were spectacular, offering the perfect amount of heat and sunshine to allow for our largest yield of grapes to date followed by an unbelievable fall heading into a condensed harvest that began in October.
