Nichol Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom vines planted in 2000 at the top of the property, around 700m, this was fermented in open-top fermenters before moving to neutral French barrique for 13 months, and then bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bright and fresh, this lively pinot noir streams raspberries, wild blackberries, crunchy plum and perfumed summer strawberries along a slender palate, with tight and grippy tannins framing this to a long, saline and smoked stone finish. The most finessed, freshest Nichol PN yet, drinking beautifully now, and over the next few years.Tasted: 25 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 26.00 winery direct Producer: Nichol Vineyard Distributors: Winery Direct
