Elegant, seamless, expressive.
Located in the Okanagan Falls sub-GI, Meyer Family Vineyards specializes in premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from estate vineyards under the winemaking guidance of Chris Carson.
The 2018 Micro Cuvee Pinot Noir is blended from selected barrels from their McLean Creek Road vineyard. It came together in two new 500 litre French oak puncheons along with four one-year-old French oak puncheons and was aged for 11 months. Made in a hands-off approach supporting an expression of terroir,it is also unfined and unfiltered.
Itâ€™s flagrant affinity to those Pinots from Pommard is thanks to its high percentage of clone 91; it also benefits from the aromatics of clone 115.
It over delivers with aromas of ripe cherry and black raspberry, violets and cedar, rainforest floor along with botanical notes. Expressive juicy fruit and brown spice flavours are lashed with vanilla. Silky, harmonious and elegant it's a beautifully constructed wine.
