Meyer Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Micro Cuvée McLean Creek Vineyards 2017

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMicro Cuvee 2017 is predominantly Pommard 91 blended with approximately one-third of Dijon clone 667. The entire batch went in three French oak puncheons, one all new oak and other two were used just once. Somehow this wine survived the smoke and the rot that dominated the 2017 vintage, giving us a delicious, hedonistic pinot. The fruit is ripe and intense pitching raspberries, Bing cherries, plums and a hint of stony minerality. The tannins are sweet and dusty with a touch of bitterness adding complexity. Impressive and fun to drink now.Tasted: 20 April 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 60.00 winery direct, vqa, private retail Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
