Kitsch 5 Barrel Pinot Noir 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada5 Barrel is the reserve level pinot noir that blends two clones, 828 and 115, all grown at G-Spot Vineyards in East Kelowna. Traditionally it is a big, dark, rich style that gets plenty of new oak while it ages for eight months in the cellars. It presents much darker than the regular pinot, with black cherries, black raspberries, and strawberries mixed into a smoky oak and forest floor undercurrent. A sensual style that invites early-drinking and richer foods, such as baked salmon or duck pizza.Tasted: 17 November 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 69.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Kitsch WinesDistributors: Winery Direct
