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.
