2008 Blanc de Noir sparkling – 100% Pinot noir
Brut style wine with strong acid and refined texture – acid and citrus fruit persist and repeat in flavor and in the nose.
2011 White Blend – 60% Pinot noir, 25% Viognier, 15% Auxerrois
Lots of volume – up-front acid transitions seamlessly into a soft creamy finish, acid leaves a lingering impression.
2011 Rose’ noir – 80% Pinot noir, 20% Gamay noir
Too dark and round (without being sweet) to be a true Rosé – with complex flavors and aromas of lavender, rhubarb, dark and red cherry, very faint wood smoke gives a sweet smoked cherry impression. Very little acidity at the beginning but starts to build at the back end, leaving a mouth-watering persistence.
2008 Pinot noir – 100% Pinot noir
Released late, nearly two years following the 2009 vintage. The 2008 vintage has benefited greatly from our patience. Strong up-front minerality complimented by aromas of violet – dark concentrated cherry and black raspberry flavors dominate the mid-palate, combined with some minerality and good grip of tannin – classic beetroot finish and good acidity that lengthens the black cherry and raspberry flavors at the end.
2009 Pinot noir Reserve – 100% Pinot noir – Limited Quantity
Cherry, raspberry, strawberry and apricot, satiny texture – expressive fruit, builds in mid-palate into strong Queen Anne cherry and impressions of minerality – acidity becomes more prominent in the finish and fresh raspberry returns and persists.
Pinot noir ‘Sangria”
Pinot noir combined with a reduction of Pinot noir, citrus and spices, then fortified with Pinot noir Brandy. Served over ice ~ it’s slightly sweet, slightly spicy, concentrated and refreshing.
Hard Apple Cider – 100% Estate grown apples
Refined and delicate like a wine. Very slightly carbonated adding a bright refreshing tingle. Classic fermented apple flavors with a hint of cinnamon and banana.
