Description

INNOCENCE and PURITY

Glitteringly pale lotus yellow in colour, look for subtle aromatic finesse: a lively citrus profile of grapefruit, lemon pith and white floral blossom tinged with pear and mandarin. A backbone of steely Prince Edward County minerality highlighted by flavours of orchard stone fruit. An ideal aperitif wine.

Food Pairings: Fattier Seafood like salmon and higher acid food like tomatoes. Simple shellfish - marinated mussels, roasted red peppers or linguine with clams. White meats - pork and fennel sausages with apple relish, veal prosciutto, poached Dijon chicken. Cheese - goat, fresh un-ripened (ricotta, fontina or mozzarella).

Comment:

At 14 years old, Huff Estates is one of the oldest wineries in the thriving Prince Edward County wine region. French winemaker Frédéric Picard has his roots in Burgundy, and much experience at wineries around the world, and is crafting world class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, among many other varietals at Huff Estates.

 

This is a lovely Pinot Gris showing the character of Prince Edward County terroir; citrus and stone fruit-forward with mineral undertones. Aged in stainless steel, there’s an extra touch of acidity that gives the wine a refreshing, tart first sip that smoothes into a lovely balance of fruit with a hint of sweetness on the palate. Enjoy!
