From the Winery:

Grown on the south-facing slopes of our organic and
biodynamic estate vineyard in Avonport (Dijon clones 115,
667, 777, 828, planted in 2012); sheltered by Bay of Fundy
breezes and born out of meticulous viticultural effort.
Canopy management practices in this block include cluster
thinning, leaf thinning and shoot positioning, all by hand.
The 2021 growing season was characterized by warm
weather throughout the spring and summer months,
combined with abundant rainfall, meaning yields were up
slightly on average, but ripeness parameters were met.
Hand-harvested and hand-sorted on October 24th. Wild
fermentation (20% whole cluster, 80% crushed and
destemmed) was followed by 21-months aging in mostly
used French oak. Bottled September 15th 2023.

TASTING NOTES:

Medium ruby hue in the glass. On the nose, a classic Pinot
perfume with rich brandied cherry, fresh rose petal and
hints of ground nutmeg. With time in the glass, the
bouquet opens to earthier, herbal aromas reminiscent of
sage leaf and fennel. The palate is nicely structured with
bright red fruit flavours framed by medium tannins and
persistent length. An elegant, restrained style of cool
climate Pinot Noir that is characterized by vibrancy and

finesse.

Pairing suggestions include roast pork or poultry, fatty fish
such as salmon or tuna, white bean dishes and wild

mushroom pasta.
