2017 Pinot Noir
Well balanced and pleasantly approachable; a distinct reflection of the terroir. Our 2017 Pinot Noir presents with the versatility and profound character we come to expect from this prized and beloved varietal. Our anticipation of further development is challenged by the quality that can be enjoyed, now.
Pale ruby red in colour with notes of blueberry and currants, earthy characteristics, violets and coffee, mid-weight, firm and well balanced, softly enveloping and harmonious with a fruity and vanilla finish with good length.
We have a special affinity for Pinot Noir at Vieni Estates; our first vintage in 2012 immediately spoke to the quality of wines we would be able to produce with this very special varietal. Rightfully regarded as a star of the Niagara Region, we're always excited as we anticipate the result of each growing season and vintage. The expressions of this varietal have an incredible variance across the new world and of course, we produce a cool-climate Pinot Noir and, as such, we can more closely be conflated with old world Pinot Noirs; we enjoy and value this distinction. To grow to love Pinot Noir is to grasp and appreciate the depth of the art of wine making and its relationship with nature.
