Tasting Notes: Pinot Gris in BC usually fall into two categories: plump or lean. The Fort Berens edition falls into the later with no oak contact and little-to-no malolactic fermentation influence. What you get is a lean, mean, Pinot Grigio-style machine that, despite its display of ripe melon fruit on the nose, is otherwise a vessel for raw, intense, tart orchard and citrus fruit. There are also layers of herbs and minerals adding depth and length to the finish. Enjoy this wine in its youth. Drink now-2016.
