Bachelder Wismer Parke Pinot Noir 2018

Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaDelicious stuff but again more on the savoury, earthy, spicy side and, as winemaker Thomas Bachelder might say, “iron-tinged.” It sits inland just under 6 kilometres from Lake Ontario on Twenty Mile Bench. The soil is a mix of reddish magnesium and dolomitic-limestone clay with a solid silt component. The vines are reaching into their third decade; the clones are 115 and 667. The nose and the textures are, in a word, pretty, with bits of cherries and spice fighting for space. So complex and nuanced, it has a bright future in the bottle and is ultimately made for the dinner table.Tasted: 22 May 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: ON 47.95 winery online/direct Producer: Mary et Thomas Delaney-Bachelder et FillesDistributors: Winery Direct
