2015 Desert Hills Pinot Gris
1 In Stock
BC VQA Okanagan Valley
Sept 25th 2015
A beautifully bright wine with flavours of pear and honeydew melon.
A high degree of selection resulted in an output of only 3.5 tons of grapes from an acre and a quarter block of Pinot Gris on this, our Estate Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench. With an east-west orientation and the famous sandy soils, this vineyards provides maximum sun exposure and great drainage.
150 Cases Produced
Grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted followed by a whole berry gravity “crush,” whereby free run juice had minimal skin contact. Fermentation temperature were maintained at 15 degrees to optimize flavours. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine was racked into stainless where it cold stabilized for two weeks, filtered, then bottled.
Food Pairing Notes
A perfect summer sipper and great cocktail wine!
