The Westcott Vineyards “Home Farm” is a 40-acre property located at 3180 17th St. in Jordan in the VQA Vinemont Ridge appellation (Latitude 41 degrees N.) of the Niagara Region at an altitude of 170m with 3% south-easterly slope. The property has been continuously farmed since 1834 and was originally used for mixed farming typical of the early Niagara settlements.
This Pinot Noir is sourced from the Westcott Home Farm vineyard and Butlers’ Grant. 30% whole cluster fermented and all wild malolactic fermentation. Fermented in 100% French oak, 22 months barrel aged.
Rich notes of plum, ripe black cherry and currant that tantalize the taste buds. Medium acidity with soft tannins, this wine is great to enjoy now, but will also soften and develop with a few years in bottle.
