Spearhead Pinot Gris Golden Retreat Vineyard 2019

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaGolden Retreat Vineyard is in Summerland, perhaps ground zero for pinot gris. Winemaker Grant Stanley likes sleek wines, and 2019 is that. It is all hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. Ther ferment is 90 percent cold fermented in stainless steel, and 10 percent is fermented in two year old French oak barrels. Clean fresh, and electric, there is just enough fruit with a small hit of residual sugar and flesh to balance the lean acid backbone, giving the wine its life. Ready to drink and well priced, you can serve this with a myriad of seafood choices.Tasted: 30 August 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Spierhead WineryDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
