Meyer Pinot Noir (750ml)

After a decision to change careers and enter the wine world the Meyers spent three years searching for the perfect vineyard site in the Okanagan Valley. In 2006 they purchased a small 1.62 hectare vineyard on the Naramata Bench, and in 2008 purchased another 6.9 hectares in Okanagan Falls. Working with the best winemaker and viticulturists they focus on crafting small lot single vineyard wines.
Very juicy, fresh yet solid style of Pinot Noir. Ripe cherry-scented fruit generously padded with oak, cloves, smoke and light pine-scented complexity.
The fruit is sourced from six different vineyards in the Okanagan Valley. The combination of these different vineyards each having their own unique aspect, elevation and soils has produced a well-rounded Pinot Noir that showcases the Okanagan as a whole. At the winery the fruit was gently de-stemmed via gravity into small open top fermenters and allowed to cold soak. After cold soaking, an indigenous ferment began lasting 18-28 days peaking at 30C; gentle hand plunging of the must was done throughout. After a post maceration period the wine was gently pressed and then spent eight months in 100% older seasoned French oak barrels.
