A New Winter Red

Enjoy the winter wonderland outside and cozy up by the fire inside with a fabulous red — our recently released Benchmark Series Pinot Noir. A single vineyard wine, it is crafted with handpicked grapes from long-time growers Dwight and Arnie Gash’s Remuda vineyard in Okanagan Falls. Their sustainably managed, south facing hillside property produces ripe, dark fruit and firm tannins. The wine was aged in French oak barrels, the majority being neutral, for 12 months to ensure that the fruit and elegant tannins of this wine were not overpowered. A polished and finely textured Pinot Noir, it displays aromas of dark cherry and fresh raspberry, complimented by a delicate earthiness. On the palate, the fruit up front is accented by savoury notes that finish with silky tannins, giving this well-structured wine good length. Fabulous with roast turkey, roast duck or for something with a west coast flair try wild BC Salmon and pearl couscous or a truffle mushroom risotto. Only 400 cases made, available at our two wineries, and online for $41.97.
