Garnet Valley Pinot Noir 2021

Garnet Valley, Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAs has been the case with Okanagan Crush Pad / Haywire of late, this wine has undergone a rebrand, losing the Haywire name altogether, and relaunched under the new Garnet Valley Ranch label. This pinot noir included 50% whole cluster, fermented in concrete, and aged in a mix of neutral barriques and their own homemade concrete tanks. Dark earth, forest moss swirls with cherry, dark raspberry, and dark cocoa, with a gently humming texture to the fleshy core. Acidity becomes bright, and tannins are fine and lightly sticky, hugging this softer, lighter pinot to a gently spiced finish. Enjoy with a slight chill.Tasted: 02 May 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
