Roche Pinot Gris 2021

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Naramata's Kozier Organic Vineyard, this PG was planted in 2007, and fermented in neutral French oak (no MLF), where it aged for 10 months prior to bottling. The treatment provides a subtlety creamy and textural backdrop to the orchard pear, wild lemon, white honey, and scrubby desert sage ruling the palate. There's a lovely inherent freshness here, buoying this through a lingering stony finish. Quite smart, this is the best PG I've seen from this promising winery.Tasted: 17 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
