Natalie's Score: 93/100

From Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Escarpment wine region, Cloudsley Cellars 2018 Pinot Noir is a cuvée of Pinot Noir grapes sourced from several sites on the bench: Hanck, Cuesta, Homestead, Glen Elgin, Parke, May and End of the Road vineyards. Fragrant with cherry compote, crushed raspberry, savoury herbs and spicy aromas, the wine is dry, medium-bodied and beautifully balanced with juicy acidity, silky smooth on the palate. Lovely now, lightly chill and pour with a grilled pork tenderloin.

Pinot Noir food pairings: rack of lamb, grilled bison burgers, veal Porterhouse, roast turkey, lamb chops.
