Natalie's Score: 91/100

A lovely, silky pinot with fleshy cherries and red berries. Smooth and mouth-watering with a long finish. Great price for this quality.

Pinot Noir food pairings: hard cheeses, salmon off the grill, barbequed sausages, spaghetti bolognese.

Extreme mountain viticulture at its best. Made from 100% Pinot
Noir from the Wise Brothers’ Secrest Mountain Vineyard that sits
above the town of Oliver. The brothers worked hard, but it was one of
those cross-your-fingers autumns. But as luck would have it, the late
ripening and warm fall of 2010 allowed excellent flavour development;
very pure strawberry and cherry characters. The grapes were gently
treated, with the great majority of them going into the fermenter as
whole berries. The fermentation was conducted at a ridiculous, almost
fatally hot temperature for the yeast. This did allow us to extract very
fine tannins without extending our maceration at the risk of the fruit
character. Like a good Okanagan Pinot Noir should, this has the fruit,
acid, and structure for foods heavy in tomatoes and olive oil.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
