Fruit was exclusively grown on our Naramata Bench Sophia Estate Vineyard. This precious wine is made from a vineyard selection of hand-harvested clone 777 Pinot Noir which was whole berry fermented with indigenous yeast. Hand-punched down to ensure gentle tannin extraction and at the end of fermentation, gravity transferred to age sur lees in premium French oak barrels for 10 months. Bottled un-fined and unfiltered, our 2018 Reserve Pinot Noir is quite possibly one of our finest.
Tasting notes: It exhibits aromas of wild thyme, dark chocolate, black cherries and tamarillos. Its lovely acidity mingles seamlessly with its juicy tannins which will dance on your tongue.
Food pairing: This Pinot deserves to be paired with luxury; exquisite duck pate, filet mignon, or planked salmon.
