The 2018 Firesteed Pinot Noir continues its tradition of a consistent fruit driven style wine, achieved with gentle techniques in the cellar and imagination in the vineyard. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts propagated from cellars in Burgundy, pressed during the last days of fermentation and racked as soon as the wine finished malolactic fermentation.
Lively aromas of supple red cherries and mocha with a hint of maple syrup waft from the glass. On the palate, this vintage mirrors the nose showing flavours of pronounced red cherry, strawberry and a hint of rhubarb. Well balanced mid-palate, the wine expresses a roundness filled with Crème Brule and finishes smooth with notes of dark chocolate and creamy caramel.
