Medium ruby in colour, the nose is very expressive, showing classic aromas of damp earth, bright red fruit (strawberries & cherries), ripe dark fruit, baking spices with some lifted floral and botanical notes. The palate is full- bodied, showing flavours of cherry and wild strawberry, along with bright pomegranate acidity and a dash of toasty oak spice. The finish is long, with fine-grained tannins and juicy natural acidity, which should ensure a long life ahead for this wine. As has been the house style, this is not a typical Okanagan Valley Pinot Noir. Fans of Pinot Noir wines from the Russian River Valley in California will enjoy this wine.

Winemaker Notes
Our 7th Renaissance Pinot Noir in the last 21 years. The fruit was sourced from both of our Estate vineyards in Okanagan Falls. A barrel selection of the best lots from both Stag’s Hollow and Shuttleworth Creek Vineyards, this Pinot was aged in 300L French Oak Hogshead barrels and 3rd fill 228L Burgundy barrels for 15 months. A blend of 4 Pinot Noir clones (115, 667, Pommard and 777) have created our most complex, rich, and age-worthy interpretation of pinot Noir from the 2017 vintage.
Food Pairing Notes
Classic: roast chicken, rack of lamb, beef wellington, roast pork with fennel, mushroom dishes (mushroom risotto), roast or grilled lobster, venison, cassoulet, turkey dinner, beef tenderloin. Adventurous: blue cheese (the stinkier, the better), enchiladas, Chinese dishes, salmon, rich milk chocolate.
