(From 2013 Vintage) Pinot Noir requires more oversight than other grapes of the same quality. We do a lot of watching out in the vineyard. But in the winery, the less interference the better. We pretty much stand back and let the fruit lead the way. Orogeny Green Valley Pinot Noir shows bright Bing cherry, pomegranate and toffee notes on the nose, with a hint of spicy oak layered with ginger, nutmeg and coriander. The lush fruit continues to develop with time in the glass. This lovely wine pairs perfectly with seared duck breast with cherry sauce, pork tenderloin with pear-ginger chutney or wild mushroom risotto.
