Product description

The season had very little winter rainfall, and temperatures rose significantly near the end of spring, all the way through summer. Harvest began in mid-February, and lower yields resulted in remarkable aromatic intensity and flavour, delivering wines with good balance and excellent concentration.

91 Points - James Suckling

A Pinot Noir with sweet tobacco and strawberry aromas and flavours. Medium body, tight tannins and a fresh finish. Linear and fine.

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Obviously, the 2017 Ritual Pinot Noir feels ripe, the product of a warm and dry year. It is quite expressive and open, quite varietal and clean, with red fruit and floral aromas and a serious mouthfeel with very fine and chalky tannins. The oak is very integrated, and the wine feels harmonious and has good freshness.
