Blue Mountain Reserve Pinot Gris

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
