50th Parallel Estate Pinot Gris

50th Parallel Estate Pinot Gris 2018

Lake Country, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe name 50th Parallel says it all: cool, refreshing, lively, and fun to drink. What more do you need? The fruit is all hand harvested, and the fruit is whole bunch pressed. It's left to settle in an oxygen-free environment to up its primary aromatic ante. The ferment is an 80/20 split of stainless steel / three-year-old French oak barrels which appears to be the perfect mix of freshness and texture. I love the fresh orchard fruit mix of peach, nectarine and citrus, with a dash of figs in the back end. Grilled salmon, chicken samosas or grilled prawns shine with a glass of this gris.Tasted: 24 April 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.90 winery direct, private and VQA wine shops Producer: 50th Parallel EstateVarietal: Pinot Gris/Pinot GrigioCSPC: 223859UPC: 626990130246
