The Ménage a Noir Pinot Noir is a funky, crunchy and juicy wine made in the Lethbridge style. The fruit was handpicked and 100% de-stemmed. Wild yeast fermentation took place in a mixture of small 500L open vats with pigeages and 3000L wooden fermenter with daily pump-over. The wine was pressed straight to barrel (10% new French oak, 90% 1-2 year old French oak) for natural malolactic fermentation. On the nose dark cherry, Satsuma plum and berry aromas with earthy spice and forest-floor traces. The palate offers vibrant berry fruit flavours, crunchy tannins and elegant mouthfeel with a lingering fresh finish.
