Stoneboat 2007 Pinot Gris - 88 pts
Stoneboat 2007 Pinot Gris (Black Sage Bench - South Okanagan BC)
Decanted: 0 min
Cost: $18.83 (VQA Wine Store)
Tasting Notes: A quality white. Citrus and floral on the nose. The palate is citrus sweetened by nectarine and a beautiful and obvious mineral finish. Stone boat is definitely in the contender class for Icon Scores.
The tasting room at the winery is simple and modern but not stuffy, the business end twin is approachable and informative, and the wine making twin and father are excellent at the craft. All the ingredients for a successful winery. Keep your eyes open for their Pinotage and Chorus.
I enjoyed this wine in stinking hot Vancouver heat with sausages on the BBQ and a light potato salad. This was one of those nights loafing on the patio while watching my beautiful wife water the flowers. Doesn't get much better than this. Well...maybe if The Dead Weather was playing. - HC
