50th Parallel Estate Unparalleled Selection Pinot Noir 2017

Lake Country, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaUnparalleled is a mix of several blocks in 2017, a year that began wet and flooded, and ended mostly dry with lower yields. Block 6 and clone 943 make up half the blend, along with Block 3 and Block 7 boasting clones 115 and 667. The fruit is grown on sloping Lake Country vineyards situated at the 50th parallel. The style is rich, savoury and spicy with earthy forest floor notes and some light, youthful tannins to disperse. This wine needs time in the bottle or a substantial menu item like grilled salmon or a roasted pork loin.Tasted: 19 June 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 50.00 winery online/direct Producer: 50th Parallel EstateDistributors: Winery Direct
