Haywire Switchback Organic Vineyard Pinot Gris 2019

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSourced from the organic certified Switchback Vineyard in Summerland, this was whole bunch pressed to concrete tanks, where it was wild fermented. This shows a beautiful combination of crunchy Asian pear, soft peach, chalk, and an attractive flinty reductive accent after aging on its lees for 10 months. It's mineral driven and textured, both restrained and concentrated, with a crisp, pithy finish. This is serious Okanagan pinot gris that's only going to get better with 3-4 years in bottle.
