Spearhead Pinot Noir Golden Retreat Vineyard 2017

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Summerland's Golden Retreat Vineyard, this is one of a series of single vineyard pinots (plus two multi-site blends) that Spearhead (nee Spierhead) released from 2017. Darker raspberry, black cherry, dark earth is carried on the medium-bodied, cool palate to a savoury, Worcestershire-scented finish. There's a welcome tart acidity to lift this easily to the finish making it very food-friendly. A lovely wine for duck or rabbit. This one blends Pommard 115 and 667 clones, each native fermented with three weeks on skins before 13 months in French oak barrels, 25 percent new.Tasted: 21 February 2019Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 33.00 winery direct, vqa, private retail Producer: Spierhead WineryDistributors: Christopher Stewart Wines and Spirits Inc.
