Tightrope Winery Pinot Noir Fleet Road Vineyard 2022

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of two single vineyard pinot noirs from 2022, this is off Naramata's sustainably farmed Fleet Road Vineyard. Destemmed grapes were native fermented in stainless over 3 weeks on skins before pressing and resting in French oak (30% new) for 10 months. Fragrant black cherry, juicy black plum is scented with scrubby herbs, and wrapped with long, finely sticky tannins, finishing with an alluring medicinal raspberry and salinity. Lovely balance in this medium bodied pinot, one well suited to duck.Tasted: 01 April 2024Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
