WINEMAKING NOTES

This Pinot Noir was sourced from our VQA Niagara vineyards. After careful hand-picking, the grapes were crushed and destemmed before being transferred to open-top fermenters for approximately 30 days of alcoholic fermentation on the skins with regular pigeage to gently extract tannin and colour. Following fermentation the wine was pressed off the skins and transferred to French barriques for 8 months of ageing. The wine was lightly fined and filtered before bottling in early July 2017.
