Tinhorn Creek Pinot Gris 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPear and ripe pink grapefruit on the nose, with heady perfume and tropical spiced overtones. The medium and creamy palate shows more ripe pear, along with mild honey, tropical blossoms and stony spice. The stainless steel ferment and aging preserve the fresh orchard fruit, while two months of lees stirring amps up the creaminess. The pinot gris vines are now in their 19th year, and the 2013 vintage is stronger than ever. Pear with grilled pork or halibut.Tasted: 15 March 2015Tasted by: Prices:
