Melon-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.

Reviews and Ratings

David Peacock reviewed this wine as follows:

I tried the 2013. Enjoyed immensely with humus and toasted pita.
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.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
