Bartier Bros. Pinot Noir 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis Pinot Noir is new to the BB portfolio, with grapes sourced from Naramata Terrace's silty soils. Utilizing 15% whole clusters, this macerated over 18 days in stainless, and rested 17 months in 225L neutral French barrels and a neutral oak tank. Soft and sapid, with plump plum, downy raspberry, seasoned with brown spices and hugged with silky cedar-scented tannins. The finishes puffs with light smoked stones. This is tasting a bit tired at present, and would benefit from a slight chill and cracking into now, ideally with smoked salmon or roasted beet salads.Tasted: 21 May 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
