Spearhead Pinot Noir GFV Saddle Block

Spearhead Pinot Noir GFV Saddle Block 2017

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaGentleman Farmer Vineyard, GFV, is Spearhead’s East Kelowna home vineyard. It’s a mix of clones 115, 777 and 828, native fermented and with a full three weeks on skins before resting 13 months in 25 percent French oak. This is a friendly, supple, easy-sipping northern Okanagan version of pinot noir that will attract a large audience (private wine shops take note). What it lacks in edgy acidity and tightness, it more than makes up for it with a sweetish mix of raspberries and cherries, pliable tannins and brown spice. Very different from the other single site pinots; ready-to-drink.Tasted: 13 March 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 33.00 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: Spierhead WineryDistributors: Christopher Stewart Wines and Spirits Inc.
