Natalie's Score: 90/100

A gorgeous pinot with extraordinary elegance and balance. Ripe cherry aromas but not too berry-fruity: some subtle earthiness. Satin smooth and medium-bodied.

Sourced from estate vines, as well as two local vineyards from Prince Edward County. A five day cold soak preceeded a 20-16 day warm fermentation. Half the wine was fermented using pigeage, delestage and pumpover; the other half was punched down by hand in small 800 kg lots. All of the 2008 Pinot Noir was barreled down into French oak, with about 20% new, for an 11 month elevage on fine lees. Painstaking tasting and blending resulted in 45 barrels being selected for inclusion into this cuvee.
