Nichol Vineyard Two Barrels Pinot Gris 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of two of Nichol's characteristic peach / orange hued pinot gris', this square label pg goes through full MLF, in barrel, as the name suggests, before it was bottled unfined and unfiltered. The effect has plumped out the 11.9 degree body some, affording some tangerine, kumquat, lees, melon, for the grapefruit pith / peel acidity to tighten. Astringency cleanses out the finish, and with the slight padding on the mid, and texture from some skin contact, this gris was built for food.Tasted: 25 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Nichol Vineyard Distributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
