Maverick Estate Winery 2011 Pinot Gris - 89pts

Maverick Estate Winery 2011 Pinot Gris (Golden Mile Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

: Direct from winery here
Cost: $20
Alcohol: 13.1%
Production: 113 cases
Date Tasted: July 26th, 2013

Tasting Notes: A full and flavourful Pinot Gris (with 5% Gewürztraminer added) that generates much of its texture and body from 3 months of lees contact and partial oak fermentation. Boasts apple sauce, Bosc pear and fruity brioche aromas on the reserved, yet, complex nose followed by an equally intricate palate offering similar flavours with added minerality, more citrus influence and a nice balance of creamy texture and mannered acidity. Drink 2013-2015.
