Liquid satin in a glass. Fleshy field cherries with a luxuriously smooth texture. Not heavy yet so full of character. Extremely elegant and versatile with many dishes. Lovely rich dark cherry aromas of the nose unfold to dark plum and some dried herbs on the palate. Full-bodied for pinot, yet balanced and elegant. Concentrated flavours with a long finish. Polished tannins and elegant structure. Great craftsmanship here. Pair with planked salmon or grilled tuna. One of Canada's best.

Pinot Noir food pairings: Peking duck or rotisserie chicken stuffed with preserved lemon.

Scrumptious Seafood Wine

Fred Johnson reviewed this wine as follows:

Purchased at winery Oliver, BC
The grapes for the 2010 Pinot Noir were hand harvested early in October from 2 sites at Burrowing Owl Vineyard on Black Sage Road. The fruit was hand sorted, de-stemmed and slightly crushed into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The fruit was left at low temperature for approximately 3 days, and was then inoculated with our preferred yeast strains. Fermentation peaked at 32ºC and at the end of ferment, the wine was left on the skins for a period of time. After pressing, the wine was transferred into barrels for the completion of malolactic fermentation (MLF). The wine was racked after MLF and was aged in barrel for 14 months which was slightly longer than previous vintages. The Pinot Noir barrel program for consists of 33% new French and American oak.
The wine is unfiltered and un-fined for maximum flavour.
