Unsworth Vineyards Pinot Gris 2022

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaUnsworth's classic Pinot Gris sources fruit from Unsworth Vineyard, Zanatta Vineyard, and Saison Vineyard, all in the Cowichan Valley's marine silts and loams. This was whole-cluster-pressed and fermented primarily in stainless, with 10% in neutral barriques. All rested for four months on lees. Tart and zippy, with crunchy Asian pear, early green apple, and tight white blossoms racing through a slight palate, with a welcome slick of lees to temper and a wash of salinity which rings on the finish. Coastal, marine, brisk, and bright, this is what many Italian grigios wish to be.Tasted: 07 August 2023Tasted by: Prices:
