The 2013 Rebel Pinot Noir is flavourful and inviting. With bright red fruits, floral perfume, and notes of earth, this is a classic example of the varietal. Ripe tannins are balanced with fresh acidity. Enjoy on its own or with a light meal.

"The 2013 Rebel is a blend of sourced fruit from the Beamsville Bench (30%) and the rest from Twenty Mile Bench with only 16% new French oak used in aging. It has a lovely savoury opening note with cherries, raspberries, bramble and subtle spice in behind. There is good balance in this wine with everything fairly well integrated through the finessed finish."
