2019 Say Yes Pinot Gris
On the nose you will find aromas of quince, fig, the pit of a peach & fresh linen. In this balanced medium bodied wine you will find an enjoyable creamy texture with flavours of tangerine, lemon & almond with a hint of sweet honeydew.
100% Pinot Gris sourced from several of our estate vineyards in Summerland. Our Pinot Gris gets very dark during the ripening phase of our growing season, so to retain the crispness & have minimal colour, we press the juice off the skins right away & cold settle it in tank for a few days before initiating fermentation. Usually showing notes of pear & grapefruit, we keep the fermentation temperatures relatively low to bring out interesting fruity esters & retain acidity. This is a well rounded representation of the most planted varietals in the Okanagan.
Food Pairing Notes
A wine that can be enjoyed without food, but some great pairing suggestions are roasted chicken with a garden salad, cream based pasta dishes or some fresh steamed mussels.
