Pinot Gris 2018

Pinot Gris 2018


The grapes for our Pinot Gris are grown in scenic Lake Country, nestled between Wood Lake, Kalamalka Lake and the northern part of Okanagan Lake. The lakes moderate the often extreme temperatures experienced in the Okanagan, making this area especially suitable for the pinot varieties. The growing season stays frost-free until late fall, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and produce subtle flavours while retaining plenty of natural acidity. The grapes are hand harvested and whole-cluster pressed or crushed/pressed depending on the ripeness and the degree of extraction desired. The fermentation is done mostly in stainless steel tanks with added yeast. 10% of the wine is allowed to undergo a natural fermentation in neutral barrels with no added yeast. The wine is aged on the lees for three months before filtration and bottling.

Tasting Notes
Ripe apple, pear, peach and delicate floral aromas. The palate shows good minerality and extract, with refreshing acidity and fruit flavour on the finish.
