Natalie's Score: 92/100
Grapes for this heavenly Pinot Noir are grown in the Homestead Vineyard, owned by the renowned Wismer family, near Ball's Falls. More depth and minerality than the entry level Cloudsley Pinot. Aromas of dark cherry and spice and violets. Pair with veal.

From Ontario's Twenty Mile Bench appellation, this pinot noir is impressive. The attractive bouquet of strawberry and blackberry is enhanced by notes of cedar and farmyard. Ruby in colour and medium bodied, this wine reveals a pleasing palate of red cherry and strawberry that is complemented by a touch of turned earth.

Within 30 seconds of speaking with owner and winemaker Adam Lowy you begin to understand how deep his passion for Pinot Noir is. Adam’s boutique winery, Cloudsley Cellars, is situated in a very particular area of the Niagara region – Twenty Mile Bench to be exact, and that is by no accident. With a true passion for Burgundy’s most famous red grape, Adam choose the site due to the make-up of the soil, the availability of local high-quality fruit and is a perfect example of meticulous winemaking. This 2015 Homestead Pinot Noir is made from grapes sourced from a single vineyard, specifically chosen to produce this wine. Dry and light bodied, notes of vibrant cherry, a little plum combine with a little funk and wet earth tantalize the nose. The same flavors repeat on the palate along with kisses of vanilla, spicy black pepper and mouth-watering freshness. Painstaking care has been employed to ensure that no one component outdoes the other (which explains the 27% of new French oak used….not 26%, or 28%....27% is the magic number). So much attention to detail, so much joy in a bottle. Pair this with lightly grilled salmon on a warm afternoon and transport your palate to Bourgogne.
|L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Taste of Ontario 2019 @ Ottawa:Colour is on the pale side of ruby, dry, tannins and balanced acidity. Lighter red fruits with evident pepperiness and some earthiness. Enjoyable with braised beef and mushrooms!
