Free Form Vin Gris 2019

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFor the first time in 2019, Free Form Vin Gris comes from Garnet Valley Ranch. It is made the same as the previous two vintages: whole bunch pressed and native fermented in concrete, where it underwent full MLF and rested for six months on lees prior to bottling unfiltered, with a wee amount of SO2. Tight and focused, with gooseberry, quince on a slick, sleek palate, with ample energy and verve. The finish lingers with a bergamot note, and ample mineral salts. Well done, yet again; this wine will only improve with time in bottle.Tasted: 25 August 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 26.90 winery direct Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
