Stag's Hollow Pinot Noir Stag's Hollow Vineyard 2018

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Stag's Hollow is always a slightly bigger pinot than the Shuttleworth Creek version, given its advantage of a warm west facing aspect. The nose is fresh and clean with vibrant cherry and plum that spills across the palate. Again lively and lithe, the juicy red fruit mixes with licorice and cola, before a long, mouthfilling, balanced finish. Stag's Hollow Estate Vineyard is home to the oldest pinot vines at Stag's Hollow. Now at 26 years of age, they deliver a complex mix of co-fermented Dijon clones 115 and 667. Turkey would be a fine match.Tasted: 14 August 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 27.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers AB 26.00 private wine shops Producer: Stag's Hollow Winery and VineyardDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
