River Stone Estate Winery 2012 Pinot Gris (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

: Direct from winery here
Cost: $20
Alcohol: 13.4%
Date Tasted: July 18th, 2013

Tasting Notes: The ultimate descriptor for this Pinot Gris is 'balanced'. It's not as flashy as some of its Black Sage Bench cousins-from-other-puncheons™, but it works; it delivers the right balance of fruit'n'terroir to acid'n'texture.

Green apple, sweet orchard fruit and mineral notes adorn the pleasant nose while the dry-ish palate offers a nice blend of stonefruit, citrus and apples framed by a tangy-yet-full body. A hint of herbs lingers on the long, balanced finish. This pale-platinum hued Pinot Gris pairs nicely with your favourite poultry feast, though, has enough complexity to be enjoyed on its own. Drink 2013-2015.
