Lightning Rock Canyonview Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is one of three pinot noirs Summerland's Lightning Rock Winery released in 2018. This is from Canyonview Vineyard's sandy and granite studded soils, planted in 2003. Partial whole cluster, this was native fermented in tank before being pressed to neutral oak of varying sizes for aging. A deeper cherry hue, this is flush with raspberry, sour cherry, subtle red florals, baked rhubarb, light earth on a softer palate, albeit one spiked with a salty bite and lipstick kiss on the finish. A youthful project, and one to keep a close eye on.Tasted: 08 April 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct Producer: Lightning RockDistributors: Sur Lie
