Tantalus 2019 Maija Pinot Noir 750ml
Showcasing a bright ruby red in the glass, this wine exhibits classic Pinot aromas of raspberry, cardamom spice and wet earth, complemented by hints of black tea, lilac and a lovely, savoury tomato leaf.
The palate is lively with notes of ripe red fruits, fresh plum and a lingering pomegranate character - all brought together seamlessly with a wisp of French oak. Lively acidity here, balancing beautifully with the fine, velvety tannin structure.
Fruit for this Pinot Noir was handpicked from our youngest estate blocks of Dijon plantings, complemented by fruit sourced, for the first time, from a neighbouring vineyard in South East Kelowna of impeccable quality.
Vinified in small lots using 100% wild fermentation, the small batches were then placed into a selection of new (20%) and seasoned French oak barriques for 11 months and blended, just prior to bottling.
