Reviews

Expressive, pristine, concentrated. The purity of this wine is constantly noteworthy. Expect sweet tree fruits (think peach, pear and golden apples), zesty citrus and honeysuckle on the nose. It is crunchy and precise with a mouthwatering finish. It also has concentration length and levity.
Pair: Crab cakes served with spicy peach salsa, chicken salad or creamy pastas.   ~ Daenna Van Mulligen - WineDiva

90. Spirited pinot gris here from Spearhead's Golden Retreat Vineyard, evident of concentrated fruit made whole by a syringe full of mineral salts injected through. Pretty salty stuff in fact and fun for the whole family. Focused, precise and plain terrific Okanagan white wine. Drink 2020-2022.   ~ Michael Godel - Wine Align

89. Good, clean fun here in this fleshy, fruity pinot gris from Spearhead, with notable lees contribution and firm acids. Designed for immediate enjoyment, well made and fairly priced.   ~ John Szabo, MS - Wine Align

91. Spearhead is a small winery located in East Kelowna, but the fruit in this wine is from the Golden Retreat Vineyard in Summerland. It is a lovely bright, fresh BC Pinot gris with ample peach-apricot, lemon and gentle herbality on the nose. It is medium bodied, spry and lively with very good acidity, youthful spritz and lemon rind bitterness on the finish. The length is excellent.  ~ David Lawrason - Wine Align

91. The wine begins with aromas of pears and apples and echoes those fruits on the palate, along with a hint of anise on the finish. The texture is full and the finish lingers.  ~ John Schreiner on Wine

88. An aromatic, partially oaked (10% in 2 year old barrels) Pinot Gris with white blossom notes prettying-up the white peach-scented nose. Crisp and refreshing on the nearly-dry, medium bodied palate with citrus and orchard fruit flavours. To be enjoyed in its youth. Drink now-2022.  ~ Liam Carrier - IconWines
