Meyer Family Vineyards Pinot Noir McLean Creek Road Vineyard 2022

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the McLean Creek Road Vineyard, planted in 1994 in OK Falls, this cuvée snapshots the site and vintage, drawing from 5 clones (91, 114, 115, 667, 777) across gravel and sandy loams from alluvial and glacial deposits. This was destemmed and cold soaked before a native ferment over two weeks before moving into French oak (25% new) for 11 months. It was bottled, unfined, and unfiltered. Juicy plum and wild raspberry are imbued with autumnal forest notes across a gently cushioned core, with slight, softer tannins guiding this to a smoked pink peppercorn, scrubby herb finish. Acidity is rhubarb bright, making this youthful pinot highly mushroom dish friendly.Tasted: 02 December 2023Tasted by: Prices:
