Garnet in color with a lovely varietal pinot nose, soft red fruits coming through. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some lovely red fruit, strawberry and raspberries. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice acidity and rustic notes. It has a lovely mouth grip to it. A very nice spot on pinot. I would give it an 88+. One of my favs from the recent New Zealand wine fair held at the ROM 5/10/2017. It’s not in the LCBO right now but will be from what I understand. For now it’s $19.95 a bottle available by the case from Wine Guru.

Winemaker: Marcus Wright/Rebecca Wiffen
Alcohol: 13.5% pH: 3.6 RS: nil

Our Pinot Noir 2015 was produced from carefully nurtured vines on our Chaytors Road vineyard, where the combination of clone, climate and soil produce something special. Small batch fermentation, hand plunging and aging in French oak barriques has helped to produce an expressive wine with strong berry fruit notes, lovely texture, great concentration and gentle tannins
