2016 Block 4 Pinot Noir
On the upper slopes of our CedarCreek Home Block Vineyard, the sandy loam soils in Block 4 provide excellent drainage. These 21-year-old vines work hard and dig deep to access water, forcing lower yields and increased concentration – smaller berries, darker colour, and increased aging potential.
In 2016, the long, cool vintage meant more hang-time for developing complexity in the fruit. In the winery, this wine went through wild fermentation and wild malolactic fermentation. It’s a powerful, structured Pinot Noir. Naturally farmed, wild fermented, bottled unfined and unfiltered.
What We’d Pair it With
Anything with bacon and mushrooms. Lighter meats like pork, veal. Cedar plank salmon.
