Tasting notes

An alluring, seductive strawberry-scented bouquet that morphs to perfumed red & black raspeberries, cherries and cranberries. The nose leads to bright, satisfying mid-mouth, pure-pinot profile. This wine expresses both intense fruit and terroir; the mouthfeel is velvety and approachable, with a lovely, perfumed chalky acidity on the finish.

QUEYLUS

Vinification and aging

After the fermentation we leave the young wine on the skins for several days/weeks more to fully delicately extract all the aromas, finesse and complexity possible from the grape skins. The wine then naturally goes through malolactic fermentation. The wine is patiently aged in selected French oak barrels (1/3 new) for 16 to 20 months. After bottling, the wines are aged a further 6-12 months to develop perfume and rount out the velvety mouthfeel.

Terroir

This wine is grown on our two vineyards planted to Pinot Noir, situated in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation in Beamsville, and on the Twenty-Mile Bench sub-appellation in Jordan. It expresses both the exuberant fruit of our younger vines in Beamsville and the fine minerality of our older-vine Bench site in Jordan.
