Martin's Lane Fritzi’s Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

West Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFritzi's Vineyard is a compact, single site that sits at the base of Mt. Boucherie, a former stratovolcano or conical volcano created 60 million years ago. It sits 417 metres above the nearby lake, although it's estimated to have been 2,000 metres or more back in the day. The vineyard faces south-east, giving it a warm nature, and it is named after owner Anthony von Mandl's mother. The vines are clone 115, and the site produces ripely sweet dark berry fruit with polished tannins. What's interesting about this wine is the floral, stony aspects that refresh the finish and help to keep all the brooding power in check. No rush to drink this one; it will only get better with additional bottle age.Tasted: 16 March 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 150.00 winery direct Producer: Martin's Lane WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
