Flat Rock Cellars Pinot Noir Twenty Mile Bench Vqa 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker's Notes: Gravity is our top blend of three Dijon clones namely 667,777 and 115. The grapes were hand picked from the 1 s t until the 9th of October 2004 at optimal physiologcal ripeness and 21.8 - 24.8 Brix. Using gravity the fruit was crushed into open top 4-ton fermenters where cold soaking took place for 4 to 8 days. Following this, the juice was fermented using commercial and wild yeast strains. Once completed, the wine was run by gravity to 2/3 new French Oak barrels and the rest a mixture of older French Oak from different cooperages to mature for 11 months. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel and was completed during the spring of 2005. All the clones were vinified and aged separately after which we selected the top ones to suit our style for the Gravity 2004.

We are here at Flat Rock for two reasons. First, we’re here to make great wine. Second, we’re here to offer you a truly personal wine experience. Everything we do comes from these two basic principles. We start in the vineyard with low yields, progressive viticulture practices and hand picking and sorting the grapes. We continue inside the winery with a sexy gravity-flow design and the latest in wine making equipment from around the world. But that’s just the tip of it. You see, it’s no fun for us if you aren’t enjoying yourself. So you’ll find an infectious sense of fun and lack of pretension at Flat Rock. We love what we do and we want to share that sense of wonder about the mysteries of the vine. From the tasting bar to our wine education programs – it’s all about getting you involved. Founded in 1999 on a spectacular piece of the Niagara Escarpment known as the Jordan Bench – Flat Rock is perched on a gently rolling slope studded with vines. The winery building is a quirky, glass encased, hexagonal masterpiece that‘s distinctive and fun. From here you can enjoy our crowning glory, the breathtaking views of the Peninsula and across Lake Ontario to Toronto. Look closely at our logo and you’ll see the image of a woman holding a basket of grapes. To us, she is the embodiment of winemaking. Our predominant colour is red because it is not only the colour of wine, but also of passion; and we are nothing if not passionate about winemaking! The rocks that are the geological foundation of the winery and are found throughout the property are the roots of our Flat Rock Cellars name. Read less

Gravity Pinot Noir is an elegant, complex wine with floral and red currant and cherry fruit on the nose. Well structured, this Pinot Noir has ripe, concentrated fruit and finishes earthy. Hints of spice and earthiness are well balanced by the natural acidity. Soft tannins round out this wine making it drinkable from now until 2010. This is my defintely one of my favorites! Each time I stop by their vineyard I have to have a glass or two.... I highly recomend this Pinot Noir. Also available on www.thecuvee.com.
