2020 Pinot Gris
Golden Retreat Vineyard in Summerland
The grapes are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. 90% of the fruit is cold fermented in stainless steel the other 10% is fermented in 2-year-old French oak barrels. The barrel portion adds texture and weight to the final wine.
Orchard fruits, pink grapefruit and aromas of tangerine on the nose, followed by ripe tropical fruit, marmalade and minerality on the palate. This is a juicy and mouth-watering wine.

Lots of ripe stone fruit, mandarin orange and some bramble leaf on the nose. Off-dry, fuller-bodied and a thicker mouthfeel. Ripe stonefruit, citrus, minerality and a touch of honey. Bright acidity. ~ Karl Kliparchuk - My Wine Pal
