2018 Pinot Noir Rubis

2018 Pinot Noir Rubis

This single vineyard wine comes from the Rubis Family Vineyard, on the Naramata Bench. This is a young vineyard that is gently sloping and west facing. It produces a bright, fruit forward Pinot Noir that is very indicative of the Naramata Bench.

This wine is gently treated from the beginning, by being hand-picked and de-stemmed but not crushed. The grapes were fermented in small half ton fermenters where they were cold soaked fro five days, before a wild ferment commenced. In total the grapes spent about 21 days on skins before being pressed. The wine as aged in French oak, 30% new, for 10 months before being bottled.
