Nathan Kendall Finger Lakes Pinot Noir 2017, New York State, USA
Dry red wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Pinot Noir from New York State, USA. 12.0% ABV.
Pale red colour. Fresh red berries, enjoyable weight and texture on the palate. The barrel aging helps this wine maintain a more fruit forward profile, whilst remaining delicate and fresh.
Tasting notes from Alexander Peartree, Wine Enthusiast
"A heady mix of ripe red berries, rose, blood orange rind and forest floor starts off this delightful Pinot, with bits of cinnamon spice and earth lingering in the background. Aged in neutral French oak, pure fruit tones shine on the palate. Fresh strawberry and ripe cranberry flavors revolve around a tangy line of acidity that propels the whole silken experience along. A delicate cherry-pit astringency brings some grip to the close." 92/100 Points
Producer Profile Nathan Kendall
Nathan K wines was founded in 2011 by Finger Lakes (New York) native Nathan Kendall, an internationally trained winemaker with a passion for creating old world style wines using quality grapes and minimal intervention. Nathan's focus is on Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir. All lots are carefully sorted, and the pristine fruit then undergoes long spontaneous fermentations. Post fermentation, the wine ages for months on the gross lees to enhance the texture. Wines are then carefully racked, never fined, and gently filtered before bottling. The bottled wines then receive 2-3 years of bottle age to evolve and achieve the best possible expression of the Finger Lakes.
