Thornhaven Estates 2008 Pinot Gris - 89pts
Availability: Direct from winery. VQA stores
Date Tasted: February 23rd, 2010
Tasting Notes: Lovely floral aromas of jasmine and blossoms with zesty citrus and rhubarb notes await you on the nose of this tasty Pinot Gris from Summerland producer Thornhaven Estates. Off-dry on the palate with tangy citrus acidity and cool minerality make this wine a rather fresh and crisp treat on a hot summer porch or a warm seat in front of a winter fire.
Well made and offered at a good price, this is another excellent Pinot Gris from BC's Okanagan Valley. Pair with roasted turkey and veggies or with a hearty salad with a tangy dressing. Enjoy now through 2012.
