Unsworth Vineyards Cowichan Valley Pinot Gris 2023

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaUnsworth's classic Cowichan Valley Pinot Gris sources fruit (clones 52, 53) from Unsworth Vineyard, Zanatta Vineyard, and Saison Vineyard, all in the Valley's marine silts and loams. This was whole cluster pressed and fermented primarily in stainless, with 10% in neutral barriques. All rested for 5 months on lees prior to bottling. Perfumed pear blossoms, crunchy Asian pear, honeydew melon flood the juicy, lean (12.3%) palate, buzzing with a subtle underlying stoniness. Lovely balance and harmony here, in one of the Island's top PGs.Tasted: 09 July 2024Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
