Purity, berry, fresh.
An estate blend of Pinot Noir, Marechal Foch, Gew and Pinot Gris grown in BC's newest sub-GI, this natural-esque wine was made by pressing-off the Pinot and Foch, then de-stemmed whole-berry Gewurz and Pinot Gris were added to the red juice. Averill Creek explains this as a red ferment in essence, but with a cap of white berries. Approximately once daily the cap was punched down. After pressing off it was left in tank on its primary lees until bottling. There were no yeast, nutrients, enzymes, or sulphites added; the wine is also unfiltered and unfined.
The colour of pomegranate juice it delivers wild red berries, tealeaf, bitter orange and vague herbal notes. It has a slight prickle on the tongue, has impressive extraction and is all berry, berry, berry on the palate. Very nice acidity and purity.
