Peak Cellars Skin Kissed Pinot Gris 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis gets a beautiful pale peach colour from 16 hours on skins, after being harvested from Block 18. It may be rosé-like in colour, but it's still very much pinot gris in character. There's a real precision to the fruit, showing peach skin, orange blossom, strawberry water, and red apple. There's a pithiness to the texture, without being bitter, and concentration and depth that is above the norm. A really interesting expression of pinot gris, and one you don't commonly find in the Okanagan.
