Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Fitzpatrick The Elusive Pinot Noir

Fitzpatrick The Elusive Pinot Noir 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom a single block of estate fruit, this mix of clones 667 and 115 was 25 percent fermented whole bunch before aging in French oak, 20 percent of which was new. Pouring a pale hue on a slender palate, this is filled with wild raspberry, dusky cherry, anise, with hints of sarsaparilla and peppery spice. Tannins are lightly tuggy, holding the fruit to a sapid finish. Youthful and earnest, and well handled, this elusive wine is one to watch in future.Tasted: 15 July 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 24.50 winery direct Producer: Fitzpatrick Family VineyardsDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
