Unsanctioned Series – Pinot Noir 2017
Unfined. Unfiltered. Unsanctioned. Trust us.
100% Pinot Noir
Our Unsanctioned Series is reserved for very special wines. The Pinot Noir was grown in a sheltered vineyard in North Oliver. The wine was fermented in a small lot and aged for 21 months in mostly neutral French oak. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Only 55 cases produced.
This Pinot Noir has a light body, elegant weight and smells of stewed red cherries, wild raspberries, baking spice, autumn leaves and sweet tobacco. Light, dusty tannins and a crisp palate are well suited to notes of more red fruit, toasted nuts, milk chocolate and a subtle hint of leather.
Pinot Noir is becoming recognized as one of the most versatile red wines out there for matching with a wide range of foods. From seared duck breast to salmon, our Pinot Noir is a great match. Our personal favourite is a canape of Crostini with Mushrooms, Prosciutto and Comté (click for recipe).
