Sperling Vineyards Amber Pinot Gris Organic 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis characteristic skin contact (amber/orange) pinot gris pours a cloudy peach hue, reflective of the entirely naturalistic approach to this certified biodynamic/organic wine. Almost entirely whole bunch (95-100%), this was fermented native to dryness and pressed after settling, omitting fining or filtering or sulphuring before bottling, with fine lees. Textural and pointed with apricot oil and skin, white peach, tangerine pith, lime pith, and a rinse of raspberry vinegar on the finish. Quite nervy, tight, and edgy.Tasted: 26 March 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Sperling VineyardsDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
