2022 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 13% ALC/VOL
Pinot Gris
Critic's Rating 90 pts

Haywire was established in 2009, with the first tiny crop harvested at Switchback Organic Vineyard, starting life as a virtual brand. Today, Haywire has grown into its own as an anchor attraction in Summerland, BC, unveiling a bold new label and a relaxing new visitor lounge spring 2023. Haywire celebrates the Okanagan’s exceptional terroir, embracing a “less is more” style, utilizing state-of-theart concrete tanks and a gentle winemaking hand.

The 2022 vintage was a cliff-hanger that ended on a highpoint thanks to a long fall. The wine is 100% Pinot Gris from King Family Vineyards on the Naramata Bench. The batch was whole cluster pressed into concrete tanks for fermentation with natural yeast and ageing on lees. Fresh pears and tropical citrus mix with Okanagan savoury notes. A satisfying wine which pairs wonderfully with a range of foods and occasions.
