Haywire Switchback Organic Vineyard Pinot Gris

Haywire Switchback Organic Vineyard Pinot Gris 2018

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPlanted 2006, from the Summerland home block. Alberto pushes for this organic pinot gris to just be called Switchback, because this singular, savoury PG is very much unlike any other. It is all about place. Lovely perfumed pear, subtle toasted stone, smoked nut, earthy fine lees, reflective of the silty, gravelly soils. So much concentration here, with ample texture and a distinct desert sage and mineral salt note. From 2018 onwards, this had the white label. As always, this wine improves with time in the bottle, and will reward in your cellar.Tasted: 21 September 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.90 winery direct Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
