River Stone Estate Winery 2010 Pinot Gris - 86pts

River Stone Estate Winery 2010 Pinot Gris (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here
Cost: $19.90
Alcohol: 14.5%
Production: 332 cases
Date Tasted: May 24th, 2011

Tasting Notes: A rich Pinot Gris from new Oliver winery River Stone whose estate fruit is blended with grapes sourced from a nearby vineyard to produce a textured, full and flavourful wine bursting with baked apple, peach and lemon characters. Abundant acidity contrasts the sugar left on the palate nicely but together they can't mask the sizable residual alcohol (14.5%) leaving the wine's balance leaning towards "hot" and shortening the finish on this otherwise enjoyable Gris. Drink 2011-2012
