Kitsch 5 Barrel Pinot Noir 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis single vineyard pinot was destemmed with 25 days on skins before resting in French oak (60% new) for 8 months. As the name suggests, this is a 5 barrel selection. This is a step up in cohesion over their estate pinot, with a dark fruited core of sultry plum, wild blackberry, black cherry, dark cocoa held with a silken glove of tannins, finishing with a dusting of perfumed violets and baking spice. Acidity is vibrant throughout, insisting this fleshy pinot is matched with roast duck and/or wild mushrooms. 125 cases.Tasted: 07 February 2022Tasted by: Prices: BC 69.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Kitsch WinesDistributors: Winery Direct
