Dark red in the glass, rich and spicy with ripe cherry, red berry, spice and a delicate floral earthiness on this medium-plus-bodied Pinot Noir. The estate is operated by the Wyse family. The winery has been a leader in solar energy in BC for the past 12 years.

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal chops, grilled duck sausages, pork tenderloin, barbecued lamb sirloin, grilled carrot mash and spring greens purée.

Delightful Duck Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A more savoury meaty style, rather than pure fruit. Some dried cherries and mulberries and bramble. It has lovely balance with nice use of oak and a long, lingering silky finish. Would pair very well with Peking duck pancakes. @wrightwineblog
From the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia V.Q.A. Burrowing Owl 2017 Pinot Noir is rich and spicy with ripe cherry, earthy spices and savoury fine herbs. Excellent poise and balance. Pair with roast goose. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
