Foxtrot Pinot Noir Wily Fox Vineyard 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFoxtrot Wily Fox is a small selection of the best barrels from the estate. These vines were six and seven years old in 2020 and are primarily own rooted cuttings from Foxtrot's Estate Vineyard. It gets a four day cold soak before a stainless steel fermentation using one-third whole clusters and destemmed berries. Gentle pumpovers marked the 21 days of maceration, followed by 14 months in 25 percent new French oak barrels. New World style here, this pinot has a robust savoury desert undertow mixed with cassis, red currants, and spicy raspberries. Built for food, this is your duck confit wine. A slightly more rugged version of the group, it will need time in the bottle.Tasted: 07 October 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
