Varietal: Pinot Gris
Region: Okanagan Valley-VQA
Bottle size: 750 mL
This unoaked Pinot Gris has enticing aromas of fresh Okanagan pears and melon with a zest of flinty limestone. An appetizing palate follows, of sun-ripened pear and apricots with a crisp, steely, minerality. Pair with fresh seafood such as grilled prawns or fresh shucked oysters.
Winemaker: Robert Summers
Growing conditions: The 2017 growing season was one of marked contrasts overall, however, it was an outstanding year. The season commenced with above normal precipitation, resulting in rapid early vine growth which necessitated increased grapevine canopy management in late spring. The wet spring was followed by a classic Okanagan summer of hot, dry weather. This provided ideal growing conditions for superior vine growth and berry development and ensured the grapes reached full phenolic ripeness.
Winemaking notes: This vintage saw decreased fruit set, which allowed this Pinot Gris from local south Okanagan vineyards to show its real potential. The wine was fermented slowly in stainless steel to dry, aged briefly on the lees, and bottled early in the season.
