Meyer Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Reimer Vineyard Kelowna 2014

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaEast Kelowna is home to this juicy, spicy, alive pinot noir. The nose is mix of jasmine and super ripe black cherries. The attack is sweet pinot with silky, round, juicy, soft fruit awash in ripe, red berries, dried herbs and a touch of brown spice. Love the balance here between acid and alcohol and the back end persistence. This is a new level of quality for pinot for BC. The grapes were harvested October 30. The vineyard, moderately steep, has a northwesterly aspect with slightly heavier alluvial and windblown deposits making up a silt loam overlaying a gravel loam. Grilled salmon, whole roasted chicken or mushroom risotto would be a dream.Tasted: 05 August 2016Tasted by: Prices: BC 40.00 winery direct, vqa, private retail Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
