Free Form Vin Gris 2019

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaRetasted one year along, and the 2019 Vin Gris is still shining, though has grown into its frame now with more age. For 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. Bosc pear, meadow grass, wild herbs rule the streamlined palate, with ripe gooseberry and white peach on the gently cushioned, lees-bedded palate, finishing with a wash of stones and rasp of salty parmesan. A very interesting wine that transcends grape.Tasted: 12 July 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.90 winery direct Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
