Sunny With a Chance of Flowers Pinot Noir 2019

You have likely heard that some characteristics of wines are good for us when taken in moderation, such as the resveratrol naturally found in red wines which can help extend our lives. Some wineries go even further to make a wine that is better for you – enter Scheid Vineyards’ Sunny With a Chance of Flowers Pinot Noir 2019. This Pinot Noir maintains 100% of the flavour while having zero sugar, no gluten, only 9% alcohol, and being certified sustainable! It’s a wine that’s good for you and the planet!

Tasting Notes: 100% Pinot Noir, ‘Sunny’ leads with black cherry and juicy red berry flavours, followed by pomegranate and toasty oak notes. The light body and tannins make it ideal for chilling and serving on the patio!

Enjoy With: Grilled or rotisserie chicken, turkey burgers, margarita pizza, pasta in tomato basil sauces, or gruyere cheese.

Style: A light-bodied, zero-sugar, fruity, low-alcohol red wine.

Terroir/Region: Monterey, California is well known as a winemaking region, and its Pinot Noir is a prized commodity. Morning fogs roll in across this long, narrow region of the California coast, cooling the grapes and allowing for slow ripening. The sun burns off the fog by noon, and all afternoon the grapes are drenched in sunlight, bringing out those ripe berry flavours Cali Pinot Noir is known for.

Producer: Family-owned Scheid Vineyards uses its certified sustainable Monterey vineyards to grow this delicious Pinot Noir before fermenting it at its estate winery and applying a proprietary 2-step process of filtration. Alcohol is gently removed, making the wine healthier for you, while the full flavour is left intact. Drinking healthy has never been easier!

Availability: Sunny With a Chance of Flowers Pinot Noir 2019 is available in the California section of your local LCBO, but there are limited quantities so try it soon and stock up if you love it!
