Mayhem Pinot Gris 2022

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBone dry and fresh makes for an attractive style for those who want less sugar and more energy in their pinot gris. Look for honeysuckle, green apples, citrus, and a dusting of savoury desert scrub. The finish is stony with some mineral dust at the end. The fruit was whole bunch pressed, followed by a long, cool 10 week fermentation in stainless. Before finishing fermentation, 16% of the wine was transferred to seasoned barriques to build body and complexity. The wine rested five months on fine lees before being blended and bottled. It was hand picked on October 5 from the Ryegrass Vineyard in Oliver. Mayhem suggests fire oven pizza with sundried tomatoes, roasted garlic, arugula; or prawn tacos with homemade mango salsa and fresh cilantro. I am ready. Super value, real wine.Tasted: 25 July 2023Tasted by: Prices:
