Juicy, earthy, lovely.
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. The vines in this vineyard are the estate's oldest at 28 years. The lots were vinified and aged separately in 300L (16% new) French oak barrels for 12 months before blending.
Another fantastic vintage for this Pinot, it leads with raspberry, red cherry, roasted beets, cedar chips and violets and suggests pomegranate, star anise and Turkish coffee undertones. It has a lovely supple entry with lovey freshness and structure. Forest floor, red fruits and fine toasted spice flavours round out the palate. Great persistence.
