At its best, cool-climate Pinot Noir is bright, focused, and elegant by nature. In a longer, cool vintage this Pinot Noir is also powerful, complex and incredibly perfumed. While we draw our inspiration from the wines of Burgundy, it is the lesser-known villages of Fixin, Santenay, and Mercurey that are most influential. Our Reserve Pinot Noir is a clonal selection with the grapes sourced from four select vineyard sites on the Naramata Bench. These vineyards have been chosen for their smaller berried Dijon clones, which have finer tannins and more spicy aromas. Our approach to this wine is vineyard based and, as such, our winemaking process is relatively simple. We employ a clean, straightforward ferment followed by a gentle pressing, and the wine is aged for eight months in select Burgundian barriques. The wine is further aged for twelve months in bottle before release.
