Blue Grouse Estate Pinot Noir 2020

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaAnother classic island pinot draws you into the glass with a modest 12 percent alcohol. The colour is pale, the style refreshingly delicate with bright acidity. Pick your cool red fruit descriptor from raspberries to cherries to cranberries and pomegranate: it has it all in measured and balanced amounts. The finish is earthy, stemmy, and spicy curry with a lovely mineral underscore. An intellectual pinot that suggests the future of Cowichan Valley is as bright as this wine. Mott 32 Bejing duck is the match.Tasted: 16 August 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
