Hillside Un-oaked Pinot Gris 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIt's back, and just as good as last year. Is this a complicated wine? No, but it gets full marks for being delicious. Hillside has made the long journey to terroir-based wines grown only on the Naramata bench and this one comes from around the village. Fresh and juicy, with slivers of orange that accentuate the citrus washed orchard fruit. It has a just a hint of colour a la Provençal which would tempt me to sell this as a pinot gris rosé, a category I’m sure BCers can get behind. Think grilled chicken, mussels, clams, cracked crab. Drink all summer while it lasts.Tasted: 13 July 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
