Roche Pinot Gris 2015

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Roche tasting room is now open in Naramata, providing a perfect opportunity to pre-taste this pinot gris that is unlike most in the valley. The richness comes from a barrel fermentation in neutral French oak. You get the air and the lees, but not the oak. It rich and round but in a much more subtle manner, playing on ginger, pears and citrus flavours. This is food friendly and would be perfect with halibut and an orchard fruit salsa. Later this fall it would be perfect with a mushroom risotto.Tasted: 18 August 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
