Blue Mountain Reserve Pinot Gris 2017

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis polished Reserve once again proves its place as one of the top in BC in 2017 (yes, a current release now in spring 2020). 31 year old estate vines were native fermented predominantly in stainless, with 30% in new to 4th fill barrels and foudre, the latter aged on lees. Structural without being severe, with orchard pear and green apple flooding a creamy palate, subtly seasoned with wild desert herbs. Lovely poise and presence and confidence, drinking smartly now.Tasted: 19 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.90 winery direct, private wine shops AB 31.95 private wine shops Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
