Clos du Soleil Winemaker's Series Whispered Secret Vineyard Pinot Gris 2020

Keremeos, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOrganic pinot gris from Whispered Secret Vineyard in Keremeos is fermented in stainless steel barrels, tanks, and French oak puncheons. Like other Similkameen 2020s, it has a presence in the bottle that is almost unnerving. There is a complexity and layers of flavours you don’t normally associate with pinot gris. Texture, precision, power, and finesse. It is only a pinot gris, but what the heck? It is a good one. The finish is dry and crisp with a twist of lime pith. Serve with raw or lightly cooked shellfish, and raw or barely cooked tomato dishes or fresh goat cheese. Love the price.Tasted: 21 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.90 BCLS, winery online and select private retailers Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
