ABOUT THE WINE

Picked from two unique vineyards within the Okanagan Valley (50% Hollenbach Vineyard in the Skaha Bluffs of southern Penticton and 50% Hidden Terrace Vineyard just north of Oliver). The grapes were whole cluster pressed and cool fermented in stainless steel to develop a pure, focused, fruit expression. The wine was then aged in a stainless steel tank for a short period of time before bottling. ..

Limited production of 217 cases.

TASTING NOTES

This reserve bottling of Pinot Gris really ‘struts its stuff’ with a classic aroma of peach, melon, floral, apple, pear and a hint of wet stone. This is a medium-bodied, slightly rich wine with a round mouth-feel and just enough acidity to refresh, along with flavours of melon and peach. Spicy melon flavours linger on the almost creamy finish. Drink while young and fresh.

FOOD PAIRINGS

A terrific Pinot Gris that is right at home with slightly rich food items. Serve not overly chilled with crab cakes and a mayo dipping sauce; pork tenderloin in a brandy cream sauce; butternut squash soup with toasted almonds; smoked salmon cream cheese pinwheels; sweet potato ravioli with toasted walnut, butter and sage sauce; linguini with shrimp in a garlic cream sauce; leek and mushroom quiche.

Available exclusively online and at the winery.
