Pristine, bouncy, expressive.
Pinot Noir Maestro, Grant Stanley heads up the winemaking at Spearhead these days, so there's no surprise we're seeing additional SKUs of Pinot.
The Coyote Vineyard is a western aspect site near West Kelowna with a south facing exposure. The vines (Dijon clone 115) were planted in its volcanic soils in 2008. The wine was matured 13 months in 100% French oak barrel.
Of the Spearhead Pinots this one soars above; high-toned wild red berries, smoked rhubarb, bacon fat, leather and finely ground white pepper aromas morph into a sweet and expressive palate that is bouncy and pristine. Flavours of bergamot, fresh berries, rose petals and spice wash across a silky palate. Excellent length and character.
