Haywire Switchback Pinot Gris 2019

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSwitchback refers to the road leading up from Lake Okanagan to this pristine, certified organic Summerland vineyard that is thriving under the vineyard management of Okanagan Crush Pad. This is wild fermented and aged in concrete tanks for ten months. It spends time on its gross lees creating creamy textures that add weight and complexity to a grape that suffers from serious attention worldwide. The colour is more Alsace gold as it ages, but the palate remains Okanagan electric. Expect classic Okanagan minerals, desert scrub, sagebrush and honey to combine and deliver a mouthful of delicious wine. A pinot gris with style and structure made for food.Tasted: 23 February 2022Tasted by: Prices:
