Haywire Pinot Noir Canyonview Vineyard 2014

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLove how this wine is still shining nearly four full years post ferment, and if anything, putting on a bit of weight. Canyonview is a 2ha vineyard on four east/west terraces facing south. The land slopes down into Trout Creek Canyon and is under constant air movement to cool the vineyard in summer and warm it up a bit in the winter. The wine was fermented in small batches with wild yeast, and underwent manual punch downs. It was then transferred to age in concrete tanks for 11 months. Sweet cherries with brown spices (like Russian River) further plump this pinot up beyond its normally cool roots. The finish is long and soft with sweet, smoky, raspberry jam notes, pipe tobacco and cinnamon. Very hedonistic.Tasted: 06 December 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 39.90 winery direct, private wine stores Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
