Production: 500 cases
Date Tasted: May 17th, 2014
Tasting Notes: Grapes for this excellent Pinot Gris were sourced from Summerland, BC, delivering, clean, crisp, golden apple and citrus fruit characters on the subtle nose and the ultra-refreshing palate. With no oak program, stainless steel ageing only, this Pinot Gris relies on the contrast of tart, mouth-watering, green-apple acidity and its ever-so off-dry level of residual sugar to achieve a fine balance and desired texture. Light mineral notes and a hint of spice linger on the moderate finish.
This wine screams to be enjoyed on a hot patio and will aide in your quest to meld with said patio as you soak in the sun's rays and relax. To be enjoyed in its youth. Drink now-2015.
