Blue Mountain Estate Cuvée Pinot Noir 2017

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2017 vintage launched Blue Mountain's new Pinot Noir program, consisting of two vineyard blends, and three single vineyard wines. It's an exciting move for the pinot specialists, one of BC's first and foremost iconic / cult family owned wineries. The Estate Cuvée is a young vine (10 year old) blend of clones 114, 115, 667, and 777. Destemmed fruit was native fermented with three weeks of maceration and gentle pigeage, before moving to French oak, where it remained until spring 2019 when it was bottled unfiltered. Dark plum, black raspberry, ripe cherry is infiltrated with waves of lightly toasted oak. Cracked clove, nutmeg, suede seasons the fruit, while cedar-sanded tannins frame it. The whole is youthful and keen, well orchestrated and made, and ready for drinking now, though will hold short term in your cellar.Tasted: 07 October 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 35.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
