VQA Niagara Peninsula
Grape Variety - 100% Pinot Noir
Alcohol - 13%
Wine Details - The Growers Blend series, first introduced in 2008, was conceived to showcase the Niagara Peninsula sites where Pinot expresses its full potential and to capture how it performs in a given vintage. The Growers Blend Pinot is always a fan favourite and the 2011 is no exception. Hand-harvested from carefully selected vineyards and aged in French oak for 14 months.
Tasting Note - Expressive nose of cherry, cranberry and a hint of cedar. Vibrant red fruit notes replay on the palate, complemented by lively acidity and soft tannins.
What the Experts Say - "Medium-bodied, silky Niagara red wine, with mocha and spice aromas on the nose of this Pinot Noir. Fleshy ripe cherry aromas and flavours on the palate of this medium-bodied, mouth-watering Pinot Noir from Niagara. Very respected winemaker. Pair with salmon or tuna. Lovely craftsmanship" Natalie Maclean
