Introduce yourself to the unique taste of our Light ruby-coloured Pinot Noir wine, crafted from hand-harvested grapes grown in the Niagara Peninsula. This wine is fermented and macerated on the skins for three weeks and aged in oak barrels for nine months, giving it a unique taste and texture. With a low residual sugar of 3 g/L, it's a perfect choice for those who love dry red wines.
This Pinot Noir has a light ruby colour in the glass with fresh raspberry aromas, a hint of vanilla, and a touch of flaky pastry crust. On the palate, it is light and fruity with a finish that has ripe oak and smooth tannins. The wine is well balanced with a moderate acidity and a subtle sweetness that makes it perfect for sipping on a warm summer day or any occasion.

Pinot Noir has slowly become one of the more popular reds that we make, and I am confident that our 2021 will continue this trend. These grapes were hand-harvested from one of our Niagara growers and delivered to the winery as whole clusters. Upon receipt, we destemmed the grapes to break the berries for fermentation. By managing our must this way, we enjoy the benefits of both carbonic maceration/whole cluster fermentation on a portion of the fermentation (more fruit) and crushed fruit fermentation (more extraction).
The fruit was fermented and macerated on the skins for three weeks, after which we pressed the fruit and settled for one month. The wine then spent nine months in oak barrels before being blended and bottled.
At Traynor Family Vineyard, we are committed to crafting wines that are unique and delicious. This Pinot Noir is the result of our experimentation, and we believe it is the perfect representation of our winemaking style.
