Blend

100% Pinot Gris

Generally speaking, we followed tradition in making this year's Pinot Gris with a roughly 50/50 blend from our Southren Vineyards and our Home Block Estate Vineyard on the the slopes on Okanagan Lake, each providing a little ripeness and brightness respectively. But where we deviated from tradition was in the application of oak. This vintage, our ratio of oaked to unoaked portions was 30/70 where generally it is more of a 10/90 split. Why? To add a little more texture and mouthfeel on the palate. All neutral oak was used, so this is not an oaky wines by any means, just our usual Pinot Gris with slightly more weight.

Tasting Notes
Alsatian in outlook, and a little richer than our usual Pinot Gris. Ripe pear with some nectarine. Baked apple strudel reveals the warmth of the vintage. A nicely balanced wine.
