Wines / Reserve & Exclusive / Richard’s Block Pinot Noir

Richard’s Block Pinot Noir

The wine is named after our father Richard, who was instrumental in bringing this noble grape to the Okanagan Valley in the early 1970s. All of these grapes were sourced from established blocks on the Boucherie slopes above the winery.

Tasting & Pairing

A complex and beautifully structured wine. On the palate, the wine is rich and velvety with silky, structured tannins and a wonderfully long finish. Pair alongside duck, venison, grilled BC salmon and dishes that include beets or wild mushrooms.

Winemaking

All of the fruit was sourced from one of our most established blocks of Pinot Noir at our Estate (Field 4, Block 11) featuring clones 667, 117 and 115, some more than 30 years old. Each block was handpicked and vinified separately in stainless steel tanks using a combination of indigenous and French cultivated yeast strains. After fermentation the wine was aged for 13 months in French oak barrels from coopers Tonnellerie Montgillard and Maison Louis Latour, prior to bottling the final unfined and unfiltered wine. Enjoy now through 2029.
