Lightning Rock Pinot Noir Elysia Vineyard 2018

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is one of three pinot noirs released by Summerland's Lightning Rock Winery in 2018. This comes from their estate Elysia Vineyard and its limestone laced, granite bedded slopes, and from vines planted in 2006. Partial whole cluster, this was native fermented before being pressed off into neutral oak vessels of various sizes. Pouring a pale crimson hue, this swirls with wild raspberry, morello cherry, baked plum, and mineral salts. Tannins are appropriately grippy around the slender sides, drawing this to a narrow, sour cherry close.Tasted: 08 April 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct Producer: Lightning RockDistributors: Sur Lie
