Spearhead Club Consensus Pinot Noir

Spearhead Club Consensus Pinot Noir 2017

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaClub Consensus is a new pinot noir from Spearhead, one of five pinot noirs from 2017, and a blend decided upon by its wine club members. The folks decided on clones 667, 777, 828, native fermented, on skins for three weeks and then aged 13 months in French oak (25 percent new), a procedure consistent across all their pinots. The grapes came from their vineyards in Summerland and Kelowna. The style is soft, ripe and welcoming, with plum, raspberry, forest, roses and fine downy spice that fill the palate. As you might expect it’s a charming wine for drinking now.Tasted: 21 February 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: Spierhead WineryDistributors: Christopher Stewart Wines and Spirits Inc.
