2020 Devil Bend Creek Pinot Noir


The Wine

Mid garnet with a lifted nose of red cherry and a touch of crushed raspberries.  On the palate, the wine is bright red crunchy cherries, backed up with soy mushroom savouriness.  Long on the finish, with silky, fine tannin structure.  Such a delicious mouthful of wine!

2020 Vintage

The growing season started well with good soil moisture and regular rain events throughout spring. While calm, mild weather in November resulted in good flowering and fruit set, the resultant yields were slightly lower than usual. Healthy canopies appreciated regular rainfall in early summer, then through January and into February, a much dryer warmer weather pattern evolved, that would lead us to harvest. Because of this, harvest started earlier than originally expected, keeping us on our toes. The harvest was compressed, putting further pressure on the winery to keep up with fruit reception, however the quality of the resultant wines made the long hours well worth the effort.
