Reserve Pinot Noir 2014
ABOUT THE WINE
The grapes for our Pinot Noir come from several vineyards in the southern Okanagan. The Pinot Noir grapes were cold soaked for 3 days and fermented on the skins for 7 days. The wine then spent 9 months aging in 1 year old French oak barrels.
A bright ruby red colour with a bouquet of cherry, wild strawberry, red licorice, delicate spice and a whiff of smoke. This gentle, loving Rooster has a light to medium frame with pure fruit flavours of red berry, red currant, cherry and crab apple. The food-friendly acidity brings excitement and the soft tannins assist in building structure. Fresh juicy red berries linger on the finish. Enjoy while young and vibrant.
Pair with rigatoni and spicy sausage tomato sauce; mushroom lasagna; Portobello mushroom on tomato basil fettuccine; veal cutlets; duck breast salad; gourmet vegetarian pizzas with tomato, mushroom and roasted red pepper; La Sauvagine cheese with water crackers; cedar plank salmon.
