Stag's Hollow Blanc de Noirs 2018

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis new wine blends 76 percent whole cluster pressed Ritter clone pinot noir with 24 percent destemmed gamay. Two-thirds of the wine is fermented in two new 500L French oak puncheons, with the remainder in stainless steel. Post ferment, this rested in two new French oak barriques and two stainless barrels, all with battonage. All that oak and workmanship is absolutely felt in this delicate hued, lightly fruited pink, shouting over, rather than supporting the tangerine, red apple, raspberry jam, and nutmeg spicing. Nice juicy fruit, which I hope to see through a clearer lens in the future.Tasted: 18 April 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.00 winery direct and private wine shops AB 26.00 private wine shops Producer: Stag's Hollow Winery and VineyardDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
