Unsworth Vineyards Pinot Gris 2022

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaUnsworth's Pinot Gris spans three Cowichan Valley fruit sources, starting with the home Unsworth Vineyard, and adding Zanatta and Saison Vineyard. All are grown over ancient marine silt mixed with loamy soils. Unsworth does little with the whole cluster fruit, fermented primarily in stainless, with 10 percent in neutral barriques. The finished wine gets a four month sleep on lees before it goes to bottle. Bright, tart, and crammed full of crunchy green fruits with a saline finish, this wine is designed for oysters and mussels. This is a coastal wine with a marine undercurrent, reminiscent of the best from Alpine Italy.Tasted: 27 July 2023Tasted by: Prices:
