Juicy, earthy, youthful.
Stag's Hollow is located in the Okanagan Falls sub-GI and celebrated 25 years in 2020.
This Pinot, made from 25-year-old estate grown Stag's Hollow Vineyard Dijon (115, 667) clone grapes is a fine representation of the variety with a firmer than the Shuttleworth Vineyard version of the same vintage. The vines in this vineyard are the estate's oldest at 27 years. The lots were vinified and aged separately in 300L (16% new) French oak barrels for 12 months before blending.
Red currents and sour cherry aromas are layered with beet greens, cedar, rainforest floor, fine spice and cocoa. The palate is savoury and juicy with notable structure and youthfulness. Wonderful pinosity here; freshness is key.
