Sandhill Pinot Gris, Okanagan Valley, Canada, 2019 (750ml)
Sourced from the King Family Vineyard close to Naramata and Hidden Terrace Vineyard just north of Oliver. Grapes grown in cooler soils have a more intense and edgy fruit character with a certain amount of fresh liveliness to them.
Clear and bright with a pretty aroma of melon, Bartlett pear, peach, tropical fruit, mineral and delicate blossoms. This light-bodied Pinot Gris begins soft and smooth with flavours of honeydew melon, pear and white peach, then builds excitement with developing flavours of orange, sweet lemon and green apple zing with a touch of site specific minerality.
Pairs well with smoked salmon dishes; quiche; pan-fried white fish; crab cakes; pork tenderloin with a delicate cream sauce; roast chicken; pasta with pan-roasted squash.
Varietal: Pinot Gris
