Spearhead Pinot Noir Cuvée 2017

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThere’s never very much of the Cuvée because it’s a small selection of winemaker Grant Stanley’s best barrels. The flagship pinot mixes a variety of clones 828, 115, 667, and Mt. Eden, each hand harvested and aged separately for 13 months in 40 percent new French oak barrels. The nose is cool, with floral, red fruit and spice notes. The mid-weight palate is a mix of mineral, saline, black plums, black raspberry with just a dusting of brown spicing. Round, soft, easy sipping, it will be best drinking over the next three to five years.Tasted: 14 March 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 38.00 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: Spierhead WineryDistributors: Christopher Stewart Wines and Spirits Inc.
