Church & State Wines Sparkling Pinot Gris 2018

Saanich Peninsula, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaThe Brentwood Bay facility is getting serious about sparkling wine, leaving the still wine production to the Okanagan Valley. Look for a pale yellow colour flecked with green, and refined, tiny bubbles throughout the mousse. The attack is soft with light floral and pear, apple, grapefruit drizzled with citrus in the finish. The style is elegant, reflecting the origins of winemaker Arnaud Thierry who joined the team in late 2017. Thiery was born in the Champagne region of France and grew up among the vines of Bordeaux. Things are changing in a big way at Church and State.
