  • BC Okanagan Valley VQA Naramata Bench
  • 100% Pinot Noir

This is the highest rated BC Pinot of the 43-bottle varietal marathon tasting we did in September 2023. Serious and more “Old World” in approach, this wine shows fantastic length and complexity. 100% single vineyard Naramata Bench, blend of 5 different Pinot Noir clones, 30% new French oak for 10 months. This reminds me Cotes-de-Nuits wines from Burgundy. Earthy and leathery on the nose with hints of mushroom, caramel, sage and raspberry while the palate is directional and delivers a solid structure, which will fare very well for the next 8 years. Nice mix of red and black fruit flavours, well integrated oak, and some stiff tannins - but they will smooth up in the near future. The spices like white pepper, clove and cardamom on the back palate are subtle but last forever. A stunning wine. 275 cases made.
