Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Noir "La Bohème" 2016
All of Elk Cove’s delicate Pinot Noir fruit undergoes the same gentle handling through their gravity flow system. This allows them to achieve the elegance, texture and luscious quality that are the hallmarks of exquisite Pinot Noir.
Fruit from the La Bohème vineyard is fermented in small, temperature controlled steel tanks, hand punched down twice daily then aged for ten months in 36% French oak. The winemaking team then selects the very best barrels to represent the silky, lush flavor profile that exemplifies La Bohème pinot noir.
Nose: Gorgeous plum colour with black cherry and pepper on the nose.
Palate: This wine has a lush and mouth-filling palate with deep cherry and violets complimented by an earthy bramble component of liquorice and spice.
Finish: An elegant complex wine with spicy notes of black pepper and anise lead to a long finish of dusty tannins.
