Fort Berens Estate Winery 2015 Pinot Gris (Lillooet) Fraser Canyon - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $16.99 + taxes
Production: 641 cases
Date Tasted: July 19th, 2016
Tasting Notes: Produced from a co-ferment of fruit sourced from the winery's home vineyard in Lillouet (78%) and from the Blind Creek Vineyard in the Similkameen Valley (22%). A small portion of the juice was exposed to neutral oak and a secondary, malolactic fermentation while the rest saw only stainless steel with no "MLF" contact, creating a lovely, gentle texture on the glycerol-heavy palate and complimenting the peach/apricot, papaya and citrus medley of flavours. Enjoy this wine in its youth. Drink now-2018.
