Product description

SpearHead's 2019 Pinot Noir uses a combination of fruit from the Gentleman Farmer Vineyard in SE Kelowna & Golden Retreat Vineyard in Summerland.  Pinot Noir Clone 115 and 667 are separately hand harvested, destemmed to small batches and cold soaked for 5-7 days before fermentation by indigenous yeasts. The total time on skins is 16-21 days. After a gentle press the wine completes malolactic fermentation and is aged 13 months in French oak barrels (25% new).  

Aromas of spiced plum, clove, sage and star anise on the nose. The palate displays more fruit; dark cherry, blueberry and blackberry. Well balanced, with soft, integrated tannin.  Enjoy now or cellar approximately 5 years.

89 Points - Tony Aspler, My Wine Canada        Deeper ruby in colour than the 2019.  Floral, cedary, raspberry bouquet with an undergrowth note. Medium-bodied, dry, smoky-tarry flavours of plum and oak spice with ripe tannins and balancing acidity.  Very Good+;  Drink now but can be held 2 – 3 years.  Food Pairing: Rigatoni with sausage and peppers, broccoli and cheddar casserole, butternut squash and black bean enchilada, bacon-stuffed mushrooms, and baked brie with sweet pepper jelly.
