Noble Ridge The Pink One 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Pink One is all Okanagan Falls and all pinot noir grown on the home site. Its secret to success is a mix of several clones (114, 115, and 777), planted in 2001 and 2008. It gets a brief four hours of skin contact to perfect its light copper colour before a cold fermentation and a long 29-month sleep on its lees. Like, The One, it has an intriguing complexity woven through its strawberry and freshly baked biscuit nose. The palate flashes red currants and citrus with a perfectly leesy/yeasty undercurrent. It struck gold at the National Wine Awards of Canada this year, never an easy task when tasted among the country’s best. Dry and ready to drink, you can take this to the dinner table.Tasted: 13 October 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
