2009 Reserve Pinot Noir

2009 Reserve Pinot Noir

The 2009 season proved to be a great year for Pinot Noir and a great year for us to make our second Reserve Pinot Noir. The grapes for this wine came from our northern-most block of Pinot Noir, which year after year gives us naturally low yields, small berries and ripe concentrated flavours. Eight of the best barrels from this block were selected in July 2010 as being exceptional and they were blended and then returned to barrel. They spent a total of 14 months in barrel before being re-blended and allowed to age a further five months in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then racked, gently filtered and bottled in June of 2011.

Tasting Notes

The third to go to bottle of our 2009 Pinot Family is worth the wait. A big and expressive range of aromatics jumps forward, with beets, cola and sweet spices showing strongly. The palate is equally as powerful, with dark cherry, dark berries, earth, and again, beets showing through. There is a great core of acidity, synonymous with 2009 wines from Niagara. There is also a fleshy weight, good length and a base of fine tannins.
