Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars Pinot Noir 2007 Wine Review
, February 26
, September 11
and July 26
Natalie's Score: 91/100A lovely Pinot with grapes that come from 11-24 month old vines that are 100% estate grown at Blue Mountain winery. Vanilla-smoke wraps itself seductively around fleshy ripe cherries and some cassis. There are some dark spices on the finish. Superb craftsmanship.
Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled salmon, roast turkey.

|The grapes were de-stemmed and lightly crushed into open-topped fermentation tanks, with a small portion of whole clusters adding to the intensity of the flavour and enhance the mouth feel. During the 16-20 days’ maceration period, manual cap management was practiced, with punch downs occurring twice and up to three times daily. The Pinot Noir is then drained and pressed into French oak barrels, where it remains for 10 ½ months. This year 50% of the vintage was fermented with wild yeast native to the vineyard, in order to better express the terroir of our estate.|
