Mayhem Anarchy Pinot Gris 2023

Kaleden, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis imposing dark glass and gold lettered bottle is the inaugural release of Anarchy Pinot Gris, sourced from Kaeden's Belich Vineyard. This fermented in a mix of stainless steel (42%), ceramic balls (41%), and neutral puncheons (17%). All were then held on lees for 7 months before blending and bottling. Sleek pear, subtle white peach, white grapefruit peel, and apricot fuzz flood the full, 14% palate, alluringly textured with a finely buzzy spice that lingers on the finish. Quite an aspirational wine, and well achieved. Save this for the dinner table.Tasted: 09 July 2024Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
