Bachelder Wismer Parke Pinot Noir 2020

Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaThis comes from Wismer-Parke Vineyard on the Vineland Bench, a vineyard which Bachelder had to "learn to love." It yields pinots with a wild, bloody character, and that's certainly felt again with the 2020 vintage. It's distinctively gamey with lifted dark cherry fruit – think rare duck breast generously sauced with cherry compote – alongside dried lavender, thyme, and fine spices. It continually pulls you back in, so mouthwatering, sapid, and savoury, with a firm, fine-grained structure that will pay dividends over the next 5-7 years with careful cellaring.Tasted: 29 November 2022Tasted by: Prices:
