Winemaker's Notes

Testing and tasting are both very important parts of the winemaking process. Myself, Paul Sr. and members of the winemaking team pull samples regularly to assess the progress of our wines. When we tested this batch of Pinot Noir it was clear that it was a stand-out.

Made with grapes from the oldest vines in our St. David’s Bench Vineyard we used barrel ageing to enhance the depth and richness. The wine has flavours of raspberries nicely integrated giving the wine structure and age-ability.

Vineyard Manager's Notes

Producing wine in a cool climate means grapes spend more time on the vine, which results in rich layered wines. However, the longer Pinot Noir (a notoriously thin-skinned grape) stays on the vine, the more likely there are to be challenges. The slightest bit of moisture in the air can spell trouble so it is critical that we stay vigilant during the growing season. Our sustainable practices mean we are in the vineyards routinely so we can spot the beginnings of a problem and stop it from developing.

Bosc Family Food Pairings

Due to its high acidity and low tannin content, our ‘Old Vines’ Pinot Noir is light enough for grilled fish but complex enough to stand up to richer fare, such as roast chicken or beef stew.
