2020 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13% ALC/VOL
Pinot Gris
The Pinot Gris grape is a variety that can be traced back to France and the Burgundian Pinot family. The French word “Gris” translates to Gray in English and these grapes were given that name because their skins have historically had a color that can be described as gray with pink and sometimes brown tones.

The grapes are hand-picked from the Joseph’s Estates vineyard on September 18, 2020. After being de-stemmed and crushed, the Pinot Gris grapes were then giving an additional 75-hour cold-soaked on skins to extract flavours, light phenolics and a gorgeous soft copper colour. Gently pressed, settled and wild fermented in 500L open-top neutral French oak barrel. Minimal intervention, with a hint of residual sweetness still left on the pallet.

On the nose it offers fruity notes with scents of pomegranate and lemon zest. On the palate, elegant and vibrant with richness and complexity. Nectarine with citrus, rhubarb, raspberry flavours and soft tannin.
