COUNTY UNFILTERED PINOT NOIR 2019 Vegan, VQA Prince Edward County
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer NORMAN HARDIE
A REPEAT of the 2019 that was released on October 16, 2021. Here is my just-updated tasting note. Here is my new review based on a just tasted bottle. Bright medium-light violet-crimson-red colour. Gently complex, very bright, pure, plum-cherry-cranberry fruit with lots of mineral notes along with a touch of raspberry, sandalwood and cedar. Dry, medium to medium-light bodied, tangy, plum-cherry-crancherry flavours and a lingering, somewhat grippy, very crisp finish that has a chalky, mineral notes with a faint touch of oak. Bright with good cool climate purity that could work well with salmon and perhaps poultry. Has 11.5% alcohol and under 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L040331 on the lower part of the glass bottle. Screwcap closure. Just tasted side by side with the 2018 which received 92-points.
