A wonderful, pale sunset hue, this wine exudes aromas of watermelon and rose petal with hints of crushed wild raspberry, candy floss and Red Delicious apple. Lush strawberry and fresh grapefruit emerge on the palate while the finish showcases lively acidity - just enough elegance and finesse to keep you coming back for more.

The 2017 release is a 60/40 blend of young vine Pinot Noir complemented by more mature plantings of Pinot Meunier, first planted on our site in 1985. The Pinot Noir base was made with lightly pressed, whole bunch clusters giving us beautiful lifted aromatics.

The Pinot Meunier was also gently handled and spent nearly 6 days on skins to give the wine its brilliant colour. By fermenting to near dry, the vibrancy of the fruit character shines through unimpeded.
