WineDiva's Review

Juicy, berries, suppleness.
The third vintage of Stag's Hollow Blanc de Noirs was made specifically with less oak influence than previous version, which was a smart decision.
Still a pale rosy-gold hue like previous vintages the 2020 Pinot Noir grapes were hand-harvested from the Stag's Hollow Vineyards in the Okanagan Falls sub-GI.
It had minimal maceration time and the juice was blended and transferred gently into a stainless steel tank, where it was cold settled for 48 hours. It was then racked into two new 500L French oak puncheons, and one stainless steel tank. Immediately after a cool fermentation, half of the barrel-fermented portion was transferred sur-lie into stainless steel barrels for regular batonnage. After 3 months the final wine was stabilized, filtered and bottled.
Charred orange peel aromas are woven with cedar chips, red currents, strawberry, finely ground white pepper and dried herbs. The palate is juicy and brimming with tangy red fruits, kumquats and toasted spice. It's off-dry with lovely suppleness, concentration and persistence.
Pair: white meats, cream sauces, mushroom dishes, salmon, and veggie burgers.
