Description

HIDDEN TERRACE VINEYARD & KING FAMILY VINEYARD

FLAVOUR PROFILE
Clear and bright with fresh, clean aromas of melon, red apple and peach. This medium-bodied Pinot Gris has a slightly rich mouth-feel and the perfect splash of acidity on the finish to refresh. Wonderful flavours of melon and pear fill the mouth. Refreshing notes of citrus, white currant and green apple, along with a touch of spice linger on the finish.

Serve lightly chilled at 14 to 15˚C (to enhance the rich mouth-feel). Pairs well with leek and mushroom quiche; sautéed scallops; crab cakes with mayo dipping sauce; pork tenderloin with pine-nut mushroom stuffing; pork tenderloin in a cream sauce; roast chicken or turkey; butternut squash soup with toasted almonds; potato fish cakes; Beemster Graskaas Gouda.

GROWING CONDITIONS
The mid and southern Okanagan, and Similkameen Valleys, experienced an early start to the growing season with warm, dry conditions which persisted until August. The month of August and early September experienced smoke covered valleys from local wild fires which slowed the ripening process, allowing for an extended period for ripening and development of flavours. During late September conditions improved providing an excellent harvest period for early ripening varietals. An early October frost caused some issues with late ripening varietals, but overall the 2018 vintage saw a near normal to good growing season.

WINEMAKER NOTES
“Sandhill’s terroir-driven wine philosophy offers a unique reflection of the geography, topography, soil and climate of different regions, vineyards, and even different sections of the same vineyard – each contributing to the characteristic taste and personality of this wine. Ideal vineyard sites for Pinot Gris in the Okanagan Valley have slightly cooler conditions, which provide elegant fruit development. The Hidden Terrace Vineyard, located just north of Oliver, sits 330 feet above the Okanagan River, and the King Family Vineyard, just north of Penticton, on the Naramata Bench, both enjoy these slightly cooler temperatures.”
