Bench 1775 Winery 2013 Pinot Gris - 89pts

Bench 1775 Winery 2013 Pinot Gris (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $17.90
Alcohol: 14%
Date Tasted: July 2nd, 2014

Tasting Notes: Falls hard towards the tangy-punchy end of the Pinot Gris spectrum where a barrel-aged, rich version would be at the complete opposite end. Crisp, clean and even a tad pungent with some Sauvignon Blanc like grassiness on the nose, the Bench 1775 offering is a mouth-watering, citrus fruit-driven, stainless steel aged Gris with depth thanks to a refreshing vein of stonefruit that runs through the dry palate and impressive intensity and length on the finish. Drink now-2016.
