Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2014 Pinot Gris - 89pts

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2014 Pinot Gris (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here 
Cost: $19.90 (including taxes)
Alcohol: 13.5%
Date Tasted: July 9th, 2015

Tasting Notes: Shares many characteristics with partially, barrel-aged Chardonnay; full-ish, spicy, leesy and creamy. The flavour profile is somewhat similar as well, with some rich, ripe melon and orchard fruit galore, but this is undoubtedly a Pinot Gris thanks to tell-tale, nectarine, unpasteurized honey and meyer lemon notes. 

The richness and sweetness of the fruit characters are balanced nicely by mineral and woody/hay aromas and flavours. The finish is long and refreshing with lingering spice and citrus peel flavours. Drink 2015-2017.
