Stewart Family Reserve Pinot Noir

Our flagship red wine, the Stewart Family Reserve Pinot Noir is elegant and complex blending Old World charm and New World nuances. It is made in limited quantities and only in vintages of exceptional quality.

Tasting & Pairing

An elegant and enchanting wine, expect an inviting blend of cherry, raspberry and cranberry fruit with classic notes of undergrowth and the quality French oak providing an intriguing array of spices. The palate is seductive and complex with smooth, polished tannins and a lingering finish. Try pairing with French onion soup, duck confit, or even braised beef with roasted root vegetables and celeriac purée.

Winemaking

An exceptional growing season for Pinot Noir resulted in beautifully balanced fruit from over 20 year-old vines on the Boucherie Bench. Harvested by hand in early October, the fruit was chilled and soaked on the skins for several days before undergoing spontaneous fermentation. The wine was gently pressed before barrel ageing for 10 months exclusively in French oak barrels. Enjoy now until 2027.
