Haywire Switchback Organic Vineyard Pinot Gris 2017

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the organic Switchback vineyard, this clone 52 pinot gris was harvested in four batches, and whole cluster pressed to concrete tanks for native ferment with full MLF (harder to control in concrete) and ten months on the lees without racking. The 2017 is amply textured, creamier on the palate than the snappy 2016, and weighted with white peach, pear skin, apricot fuzz, melon, orange peel, and desert sage. The precision farming and silty, gravelly, calcium carbonate-laced soils keep this aloft, and 13 degrees alcohol keeps it drinkable.Tasted: 21 November 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.90 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
