Tinhorn Creek Vineyards Pinot Gris 2009 Wine Review
, February 26
, September 11
and July 26
Natalie's Score: 87/100Melon-fresh sipper with no heavy oak or alcohol. Refreshment in a glass: pure, clean and crisp. Much more interesting than Pinot Griogio, so now's the time to get out of your rut and try something new.
Pinot Gris food pairings: mushroom risotto, BBQ fish, quiche, creamy pasta, curry dishes.

|The 2009 Pinot Gris was harvested between September 18 to 24, 2009 through|
a combination of hand picking and machine harvesting. The machine harvesting
occurred late at night and early in the morning when fruit flavours were at highest
concentration. After pressing, the Pinot Gris went into two stainless steel tanks and
small stainless steel barrels (33%). The benefit of stainless steel barrels is the sur
lees contact the wine receives without any oak influence. In mid-December, after
fermentation, the wine in the stainless steel tanks and stainless steel barrels were
blended together prior to bottling in March 2010.
