Critic's Rating 90 pts


Reserve Pinot Gris 2021 is vibrant straw yellow in the glass. On the nose, it has intense aromas of honeysuckle, yellow pear, candied ginger, and soft spice. On the palate it is medium bodied with vibrant acidity and flavours of fresh pineapple, key lime peel, tangerine confit and vanilla cream. The finish is long and rich with a touch of warm spice

Enjoy now with roasted pork tenderloin with caramelized pear and shallots or mushroom dishes. Age for the short term to develop additional complexities. 1-3 years. .


This Pinot Gris was sourced exclusively from our Home Farm Vineyard located at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Seventh Street in the Creek Shores sub-appellation. Harvest was in mid-September. Following harvest, the grapes were crushed and destemmed before gentle pressing. The grapes were then fermented and aged in seasoned French oak barrels of varying sizes (228L, 400L and 500L) as well as newer acacia barrels for 12 months to preserve the fruity flavor’s After light fining and filtration, the wine was bottled in February 2023

Critic's Rating

A riper expression of Pinot Gris with beautifully defined yellow pear and honeyed peach fruit, accented by delicate spices. Nicely textured with moderate length. Tasted blind at the 2023 National Wine Awards of Canada.
