Spierhead Pinot Noir Cuvée

Spierhead Pinot Noir Cuvée 2018

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA mix of clones in the Golden Retreat Vineyard in Summerland is the source of this delicious pinot noir owned by Spierhead. Winemaker Grant Stanley has brought his intense style to the winery, and the results are impressive. The attack is awash in blueberries, blackberry and lively juicy red and blue fruit that mesh with an earthy, mushroom, spicy undercurrent. A full-on cool climate northern pinot with personality. Well done. Another marker that points to Summerland being a pinot noir hotbed.Tasted: 30 August 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 40.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Spierhead WineryDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
