Nichol Vineyard Pinot Gris

Nichol Vineyard Pinot Gris 2014

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA striking salmon hue, this Naramata Village pinot gris spent 36 hours resting on the skins in open top fermenters before being pressed off to ferment in large format, open-top fermenters and neutral French barriques. Subtle orchard fruit, stone and delicate orange aromas carry through to the medium bodied, textured palate. Light, nimble acidity brightens a sheen of creamy lees, gentle marmalade, stone and pear. Grapefruit and apricot fuzz lingers on the lengthy finish. Depth and finesse.Tasted: 10 October 2015Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Nichol Vineyard Distributors: Winery Direct
