Chain Reaction Tailwind Pinot Gris 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis was tasted against the 2019 and seems more like a welcomed progression than a chain reaction of the previous year. More lemon, more freshness, and seemingly a bit more depth of flavour were the story in 2020. Like last year there is pear and peach, but there’s a kiwi, gooseberry note that lights up the underside and keeps it fresh through a citrus finish. Well done and ready for some spicy noodles or a pan of grilled vegetables. Chain Reaction Naramata is Bench based and owned by Joel and Linda Chamaschuk, who named the venture after their passion for cycling. Well-known winemaker Dwight Sick consults here.Tasted: 22 February 2022Tasted by: Prices:
