The 2015 vintage of our Trek Vineyard Pinot Noir shows the ripe fruit character of a warm vintage, but with a bit of that classic Pinot earthiness. The nose is abundant with notes of cherry cola, rhubarb and a hint dried tobacco leaf. Firm tannins and lively acidity suggest a wine with a more to give for those with patience.
This wine appears with a bold purple hue in the glass, offering strawberry, black cherry, allspice, tomato leaf, chocolate and dried herbs on the nose. Full and rich on the palate, ripe berry and toasted oak flavours are complemented by medium-soft tannins and a long finish.
Appearing bright ruby with a purple rim, this vintage blend of Baco Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc offers red and black berry fruit, plum, herbs and spicy oak notes on the nose. It is medium-bodied and smooth with a vibrant freshness and soft tannins.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Westcott Vineyard on Vinemount Ridge, a blend of the Burgundy clones 777 and 667. The fruit was allowed to ferment spontaneously, aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, then bottled by hand with no fining or filtration. The result is a wine that balances red fruit flavours with earth, spice and dried herbs, and which will develop further complexity with bottle ageing.
