Garnet Valley Pinot Noir 2021

Garnet Valley, Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaGarnet Valley Winery makes its debut with this pinot noir under its moniker, signalling it will be a standalone entity moving forward under its license in 2023, while remaining with the same owners and winemakers, namely Christine Coletta, Steve Lornie, and Matt Dumayne. Half of the grapes were pressed stems and all, fermented in concrete, and aged in a mix of neutral barriques and concrete. Earthy, dark forest floor penetrate the black cherry. The textures are surprisingly dense and lush with a modicum of tannin yet to disperse. Bright and edgy, this is a very modern version of Okanagan pinot noir replete with a touch of savoury desert scrub. Pork, duck, or salmon all work here.Tasted: 05 May 2023Tasted by: Prices:
