Nichol Vineyard Two Barrels Pinot Gris 2014

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTwo barrels of pinot gris proved singular enough in 2014 that the winery decided to combine and bottle them separately, bottling it in a distinctive, frosted bottle. Lighter in hue than their classic pinot gris, the palate is brighter, tighter as well. Pear, green apple, subtle tangerine rests on a cushion of fine lees, finishing crisp and shining with fine, lingering spices. Savoury, broken stones linger on the finish, and deepen with time in the bottle (last tasted May 2016). Only forty cases made.Tasted: 10 October 2015Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Nichol Vineyard Distributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
