Fort Berens Pinot Gris 2021

British Columbia, CanadaLook for a crisp northern style, more grigio than gris in my estimation. This year, it is 53 percent estate with additions from West Kelowna and Savona. Post ferment, it gets five months of lees contact to encourage a creamy palate. This leads with white flowers, pear and yellow apple, with citrus, mineral, and melon on the palate before ending dry, streaked with bitter grapefruit. Perfect for pan seared calamari with salt, olive oil, and chillies.Tasted: 03 July 2022Tasted by: Prices:
