Meyer Pinot Noir 2011

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOlder barrels are the secret to BC's delicate pinot noir that simply can't take a lot of new oak. In this case the fruit is a mix of Kelowna, Oliver and Okanagan Falls fruit; some owned some purchased. Expect an overt earthy nose with bits of strawberry and racy acidity and what we can now term the Meyer elegance. The palate is soft but not flabby with wild raspberry fruit, spice, worsteshire, dried-herbs and some stony minerality. Made to drink young but it will improve in bottle over the next year or two. Simple winemaking, half wild yeast, various size open top fermenters. Gentle gentle gentle. A good value wine for chicken, pork or mushroom dishes.Tasted: 22 November 2013Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 25.00 winery direct Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
