Three Paddles Pinot Noir 2017

Garnet in color with a nice soft red berry nose. On the mid palate the wine is spot on varietal with lovely raspberry and cherry notes, almost sour cherry … On the medium length finish the wine is palate coating with lovely rich fruits lingering along with some nice smooth tannins an acidity, nice and dry. This is a beautiful wine, I would give it an 88 or so … my conundrum is for $1 more I can support Niagara wineries for wine that’s on par … But heh, variety, at least NOT in ones mate, is a good thing ;)m oh and as a kayaker who doesn’t love the name!

Three Paddles Pinot Noir 2017 from LCBO

This winery’s name is taken from Nga Waka a Kupe (the canoes of Kupe): the three hills that sit side by side like upturned canoes and form the backdrop for the town of Martinborough and its surrounds. Expect this fully mature Pinot Noir to deliver juicy raspberry, blackberry and beetroot character and pair nicely with roast chicken thighs and root veggies.[The New World Wine Awards did not include a tasting note.] Score – Gold. (New World Wine Awards, 2020)
