Natalie's Score: 91/100
Honeysuckle and apple blossom on the nose of this ultra lovely white wine from one of BC's best producers. Crisp and mouth-watering yet there's a touch of balancing natural fruit sweetness, like white apricot. The grapes for this BC white wine are grown on the sun-drenched vineyards above Lake Okanagan just north of Kelowna. Crisp, clean and vibrant with attractive white peach notes. Perfect for dishes with a light glaze or chutney.
Pinot Blanc food pairings: salmon rice bowl with ginger-lime sauce, veal cutlets.

Reviews and Ratings
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
In a blind tasting you might mistake this for Chardonnay. This Okanagan Pinot Blanc is medium lemon colour aromas and flavours of citrus, tree fruit, floral, toast, vanilla, oak. Medium-bodied with medium balanced acidity. Perfect for grilled shrimp on the BBQ or white meats such as pork and veal; planked salmon.
Serve chilled. Fun fact: Gray Monk is located 3 minutes and 19 seconds North the 50th Latitude. Bring on Trivial Pursuit!
Tasted: August 2015
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Primary aromas of yellow apple, apple blossom, flint, and young pear, with a touch of citrus behind it. On the palate, the apple, pear, and mouth-watering acidity show themselves first, but are followed by an almost creamy mouth-feel. The pear and apple linger in the long finish. Quite a nice wine for a 'boring' Pinot Blanc.

Gray Monk's BC VQA Okanagan Valley Pinot Blanc shows fresh orchard fruit aromas and a palate giving more pear and apple with citrus and good acidity.

Crisp and refreshing, a delicous Pinot Blanc from this Okanagan winery. Tasted August 2015. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|The Pinot Blanc vines for this BC white wine are planted on vineyards perched above Lake Okanagan 3 minutes and 19 seconds north of the 50th latitude according to the back label. For three generations and 30 years, the Heiss family, who owns Gray Monk, has been making wine in the Okanagan since 1972, originally as a premium grape grower. - Community Wine Reviews|
