Our first visit to this winery which is well known for it's Pinot Noir. It's a fairly tiny little tasting room but there seems to be lots of construction going on.
Spierhead 2014 Dry Riesling ($19)
Lots of citrus and green apple on the nose and palate. Very dry and crisp with nice fruit flavors. 87.
Spierhead 2014 Pinot Gris ($19)
Strong aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, surrounded by well balanced acidity. 86.
Spierhead 2013 Chardonnay ($20)
Very light, muted nose. Hints of apricot, peach and apples on the palate. Fruity and light. 84.
Spierhead 2013 Pinot Noir Rose ($18)
Cherry, strawberry and notes of pomegranate on the nose and palate. Juicy and refreshing. 85.
Spierhead 2013 Pinot Noir ($22)
Black cherry, blackberry and strawberry on the nose and palate. Just a hint of spice on the finish. Very nice. 88.
Spierhead 2012 Pursuit ($22)
Merlot dominate blend (42%), with cocoa and vanilla on the nose. Finishes long and strong. Lovely and ready to drink now; we bought one and enjoyed it a couple days ago. 88.
Up next, the Kelowna portion of our tour continues with a very unusual tasting at Rollingdale!
