Citrus fruit on the nose followed by a mouth watering orbit of flavors on the palate that include zest of lemon, melon and grapefruit balanced with a zip of acidity. Use as the liquid for your steamer clams or Penn Cove mussels. Perfect as a chilled patio wine with light appetizers.
Careful selections at the vineyard and winery allowed for this wine to provide stylistic diversity to Provincial’s Pinot Noir offerings.
From the vineyard, two Pinot Noir clones were selected in a blend of 40% 667 and 60% Pommard. It is a marriage of a light, elegant, workhorse structural base (667) with a heavier bodied, more tannic and darker colored Pommard.
The result is a wine exhibiting a complex fruit aroma, almost perfume in nature. Hinted flavors of dark fruit and blackberry make it a delight to pair with salads and light foods.
The Rêve Reserve label is our finest. This vintage uses the Estate 777 Dijon clone aged for 16 months in a second-fill extra fine grain French oak barrel allowing for a slow integration of oak and micro-oxidation over a long period of time. Caramel aromas mix with a smooth tobacco note marry with dark cherry flavor.
