Natalie's Score: 89/ 100 Zesty lemon and lime vibrancy with a crisp, clean finish. Medium-bodied. Some white peach on the mid-palate. Excellent value. Works as a refreshing aperitif or companion to seafood and vegetarian dishes.
Pinot Gris food pairings: BBQ soya salmon, chicken in shallot and mushroom sauce,and pastas in cream-based sauces. The body and depth of this wine allows for pairing with slightly heavier dishes such like veal and turkey.

Dianne Fisher Sommelier, ISG rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review: An impressive Pinot Gris from Inniskillin. The nose is complex with notes of orange peel, honey and green tarragon herb. Medium to full bodied palate which would compliment dishes of veal or citrus cured cod. Lingering lactic notes give a warming and soothing sensation and persistence. www.uncorkedsommelier.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12kR1wmrHQ8
Aimee Fowler WSET L2 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: This Pino Gris provides a refreshing and vibrant wine with lots of fresh citrus notes, crisp pear and some hints of stone fruit. Great acidity throughout the palate, along with a nice balance of sweetness and heat. Perfect to pair with lighter fair, such as pork and seafood.
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Refreshing and crisp, this delightful Pinot Gris was easy to drink. Bright flavors of honey and peach with some zest from citrus notes make for a mouth watering wine. A very nice wine to accompany many chicken dishes, seafood, and pasta.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review: Refreshing and crisp with apple and lime flavors that gives way to a lingering finish that conveys almond and a touch of nutmeg
I was able to work with handpicked grapes for this Pinot Gris from the Four Mile Creek sub appellation. I separated the juice with 30% being barrel fermented in new French oak barrels for 3 months and the rest of the juice cool fermented in stainless steel to preserve the primary fruit characteristics. After three months all the wine was blended to combine the complexity with the fruitiness.” Bruce Nicholson Source: Winery (Inniskillin Niagara Estate)
