2015 Pinot Noir
What can we say? We love this vintage of Nagging Doubt Pinot Noir! Fruit comes from the Canyon View Vineyard in Summerland. The 2015 Pinot Noir grapes were harvested on September 21. We then destemmed and cold soaked the fruit for 5 days at 10 C for colour and flavour extraction. 50% of this wine was then fermented wild, with the remainder fermented using French yeast. After 17 months of aging in 28% new French oak and the remainder in neutral oak, we bottled this wine unfined and unfiltered to preserve its natural flavour profile.
This fermentation and aging regimen has produced an incredibly complex wine. On the nose and palate, you will detect intense notes of strawberry, red cherry, spice, mushroom, and orange rind. Intense fruit, velvety tannins and refreshing acidity lead to a very long finish.
This wine is exceptional to pair with classic Pinot dishes such as duck or salmon as well as hard cheeses.
