Pinot Gris
Critic's Rating 90 pts

IN THE GLASS: grapefruit, pear, lemon zest, elderflower; crisp & dry.

VINEYARD NOTES: This wine was made from grapes grown exclusively on the Naramata Bench. They were sourced from the Fleet Road - Tightrope Estate vineyard, as well as the vineyards of the Flaherty, Madsen, Riccio, & Rubis families. The grapes were handpicked and processed the same day.

WINEMAKER NOTES: The grapes were whole cluster pressed and cold settled for three days before being racked off solids.  The juice was cool temperature fermented at 14 ⁰C in stainless steel and took about 30 days to complete. The fermentation was stopped with a small amount of residual sugar for balance.

Food Pairing Notes: veggie fajitas; prawns in a lemon butter sauce

Residual Sugar: 5.32 g/L

Critic's Rating

This wine is made from Naramata Bench fruit sourced from the Fleet Road estate vineyard, with contributions from Flaherty, Madsen, Riccio, and Rubis family vineyards. It is all handpicked and processed on the same day. This highly attractive style, even at 10 g/L residual sugar, draws you into the glass but never overwhelms you with sweetness. I love the grapefruit, pear, lemon zest, and elderflower that are all wrapped up in a dry-ish citrus finish. Try this with spicy pre-dinner bites or a favourite roasted chicken dish.
