Stag's Hollow Renaissance Pinot Noir 2020

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOnly the best lots at Stag's Hollow end up in the Renaissance labels, and Rennaisance has only been made eight times in the last 24 years. The pinot comes from the Shuttleworth Creek property. Two-thirds of the wine involves clones 667 and 115, but according to winemaker Keira Lefranc, it is the Pommard clone that completes the wine and gives it its raison d'etre. I love the elegance here, given the intense, juicy, dark cherry and plentiful baking spice. It has a sense of calm and place, suggesting that it is unique and part of the pinot noir renaissance in BC. — a perfect turkey wine that would be equally happy with most mushroom dishes.Tasted: 08 October 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
