Fort Berens Pinot Gris 2020

British Columbia, CanadaWhile they wait for their Lillooet vineyard to mature, Fort Berens continues to source fruit from around the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys for their wines. The 2020 PG takes grapes off their estate Dry Creek Vineyard, one in West Kelowna, and one in Lytton. All were whole-cluster pressed and cold fermented in stainless, where it remained until bottling. Crisp and lean, with pear, melon, green apple, and crunchy Asian pear on a bright, zesty grapefruit palate. Enjoy this fresh white this summer, as intended.Tasted: 07 June 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.99 winery online/direct, select private retailers, grocery Producer: Fort Berens Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
