Nichol Vineyard Pinot Gris 2015

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLLoving this singular BC pinot gris. Eleven to twenty-six-year-old vines, planted on granite, shard, loess and glacial till and sustainably managed are expressed in a low-intervention way. Orange salmon in hue, this Naramata Village pinot gris rested on the skins for 36 hours before fermentation in neutral French oak and stainless steel. Savoury throughout, with subtle marmalade, ample smoked stone and gentle earthy lees driven by a riffing grapefruit pith acidity and supported by a gentle tug of tannins. A standalone wine every vintage, this year is no exception.Tasted: 22 June 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Nichol Vineyard Distributors: Winery Direct
