Pinot Noir - Magnum 2020
This vintage marks the 20th year of winemaking by David after starting with just 1 ton of grapes in a garage in White Rock. After giving up our day jobs and founding highly acclaimed Laughing Stock Vineyards on the Naramata Bench, the last few years have been all about going back to the basics. This time we’ve gone deep with one varietal from one place, our Home Block vineyard in Naramata, British Columbia.
A balanced wine with ripe raspberry, dried cranberry and cocoa flavours with notes of clove combined with fresh vibrancy from the natural acidity. Decidedly elegant with lovely complexity, fine tannins and lingering finish. When the wine hits your palate, it engages all your senses like a solid handshake from a good friend (post Covid).
