Winemakers Notes

Composition:  70 % Pinot Noir, 30 % Pinot Gris

An enchanting, fruity-floral nose offers rhubarb, cantaloupe, watermelon, lavender and cherry blossom.  It’s bright and rich in the mouth and flavoured of strawberry, cranberry, crab apple, gooseberry and ruby grapefruit, leaving a lengthy, refreshing, lemon-citrusy finish.

Estate-grown grapes were hand-picked at cool daybreak temperatures on September 14th and 23rd, as grape sugars averaged 21.3 ° Brix.

This vintage introduces a second variety, pinot gris, whose similarity in balance and texture make it a natural companion to pinot noir.  The grapes were pressed directly after picking, after which, the juice was chilled in a horizontal “dairy tank” prior to cool fermentation in stainless steel.  The new Vivant was bottled in December 2020.

Enjoy now through 2023.

Dry: 0 residual sugar.

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12.5%; residual sugar: 0 grams per litre; titratable acidity: 8.1 grams per litre pH: 3.2
