Rocky Creek Pinot Gris 2018

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaTime is beginning to close in on this gris made with fruit from three estate vineyards. Its pale copper colour results from a day of skin contact before a stainless steel fermentation. The flavours are dry and tart with intense notes of sour cherry, plums, and a funky, leesy, mineral, salty, underbelly. There is plenty of promise here and full marks for being very Vancouver Island. It needs a screwcap to become a viable player in the modern marketplace.Tasted: 23 May 2020Tasted by: Prices:
