Liquidity Wines Equity Pinot Noir 2016

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMarkedly different from their two other pinots (the Estate and the Reserve), this premium tier carries much darker, duskier black fruit (cherry and raspberry) on a firmer, smoked wood frame. Equity spends 15 months in barrel and it shows in the sweeter cola, cedar-lined, spiced, very polished red, ripe with soft black and red fruits that fill the massive structure. This blends seven different clones, but focuses on 828, with 115 seconding the blend. Whole berries fermented partially wild, punched down twice / day during ferment and then pressed into French oak (32 percent new) for MLF and aging.Tasted: 30 August 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 56.00 winery direct Producer: Liquidity Wine LtdGrape: Pinot Noir
