VQA 2018 Pinot Noir Vintner’s Reserve
What’s in the bottle. Under the supervision of legendary Vintner, Jim Warren, and award winning Chief Winemaker, Jonathan Boyle, the result is a graceful Pinot Noir with a bright ruby colour and rich berry flavours, accented with hints of violets and raspberries on the palate. Cold soaked before fermentation to extract colour, this wine has been precisely temperature-controlled throughout its fermentation to help preserve its delicateness. Overall, this elegant wine is well balanced between a seam of bright berry fruit and a spicy toastiness from the oak.
Pinot Noir vintage 2018. Processed at the Windrush Estate Winery from grapes grown in Niagara-on-the-Lake at the award-winning Glen Elgin Vineyard, the wine envelops your palate. This Pinot Noir developed and matured in the vineyard in good health, following perfect summer heat. The purple grape clusters were hanging ready for hand picking, which kept the grapes intact for transfer to the winery. On arrival, Windrush winemakers gently began the process of de-stemming and crushing of the fruit before transferring into stainless tanks for its temperature-controlled fermentation.
To bring out the tannin and colour, we allowed for 5 days of cold soaking of the fruit prior to ferment. During its time in tank, the must will be pumped over via our state-of-the-art automated system, allowing for a greater control of mixing skin with juice.
