Chain Reaction Tailwind Pinot Gris 2022

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaChain Reaction is a newish Naramata Bench winery owned by Joel and Linda Chamaschuk, named after their love of cycling. They planted their first vineyard in 2019 on the Bench in 2019. Consulting winemaker Dwight Sick oversees the wines made at nearby Moraine Winery and this gris comes off two sites: Kaleden's OPG Vineyard, and Chain Reaction's McMillan Vineyard in Penticton. It is made with simple, straightforward winemaking. It was whole bunch pressed, fermented and aged stainless steel, and left on lees in tank for four months. This is a fresh, fragrant mix of florals, pears, limes, and mandarin with a sweet underbelly. More of a sipper than a food wine unless the menu is spicy.
