19:26:28 From Jo-Ann Mellon : Rolande, agree we have it usually with lunch too!
19:26:35 From lori pike : 16.99 available at the winery, BC LDB and in Alberta
19:26:45 From Gus Clemens : Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GusClemensOnWine/posts
19:26:57 From lori pike : Unoaked, juicy and dry
19:27:00 From Gus Clemens : Website: http://www.gusclemensonwine.com
19:27:39 From Trent Mayers : Pinot Gris seems to do very well in the Okanagan.
19:27:41 From lori pike : All local Oliver area grapes.
19:28:06 From lori pike : Ohh, this is special. From our 50 year old vines!
19:28:13 From Gus Clemens : Pine cone
19:28:22 From Trent Mayers : Pinot Blanc is a mutant of Pinot Noir.
19:28:29 From Gus Clemens : The bunches are shaped like pine cones
19:28:42 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : Pinot Gris and Grigio are related
19:28:58 From Mark Davis : I so agree with you on the unnecessary high alcohol content.
19:29:06 From Pamela Wood : All mutations of Pinot. Kid and Gris and Grigio are the same dna
19:29:09 From Shelley McDonald : Pinot blanc is lighter but more acidic
19:29:59 From lori pike : It’s an old vine Pinot Blanc. From 50 year old vines.
19:30:06 From David Skinner to All panelists : Pinot Grigio vs Pinot Gris. The former is a much lighter and straight forward version. Pinot Gris has a bit more complexity and can often be made with some skin contact (pinkish). It’s all about the way the wine is made since it’s the same grape.
19:30:06 From lori pike : Planted in 1968.

19:30:21 From lori pike : 15.99
19:30:28 From Karen Mitchell : I thought Gris and Grigio was the same… just different appelations call it different
19:30:41 From lori pike : Unoaked, refreshing. Dry.
19:30:59 From Trent Mayers : Wow, Lori! Low yields from those old vines, I’m guessing.
19:31:04 From lori pike : Yes.
19:31:09 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : Gris often done in oak but Grigio stainless steel
19:31:14 From lori pike : And more intense fruit, smaller berries.
19:31:32 From lori pike : Agreed. More interesting. And more character!
19:31:49 From Karen Mitchell : Oooooooooo
19:31:57 From Trent Mayers : Old vine wines are wonderful!
19:32:11 From lori pike : Character White. Unoaked and just slightly off dry.
19:32:24 From Linda Al-Molky to All panelists : Lori Pike, what is the minimum bottle order for shipping?
19:32:43 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : Chenin Blanc from SA

19:33:28 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : Big fan of Albarino as well
19:33:37 From lori pike : From local Oliver area vineyards. Fun and fruity!
19:33:54 From David Skinner : Pinot Grigio vs Pinot Gris. The former is a much lighter and straight forward version. Pinot Gris has a bit more complexity and can often be made with some skin contact (pinkish). It’s all about the way the wine is made since it’s the same grape.

19:34:54 From lori pike : PGV. Very pretty. Available at SaveOn in BC.
19:34:54 From Karen Mitchell : such interesting blends!!!
19:34:56 From Elaine Bruce : Gris vs Grigio = French pronunciation vs Italian
19:35:17 From Jennifer Havers : Ooh, I love Viognier! One of my favourite whites!
19:35:48 From Lynn van der Linde : @Elaine – Oui! Si!
19:35:52 From Trent Mayers : Viognier has such great body.
19:35:55 From Karen Mitchell : Amen Natalie! That’s going to be my first trip. BC!
19:35:58 From lori pike : Dry, unoaked. 2/3 Pinot Gris & 1/3 Viognier. Honeysuckle and peach notes.
19:36:11 From Gus Clemens : viognier also is heat tolerant, thus gaining acreage with global warming.
19:36:22 From David Skinner : I love Viognier as a varietal but it’s an awesome blending wine! Often with reds.
19:36:28 From Lynn van der Linde : @David, I knew there was a reason I prefer Gris!
19:36:33 From Karen Mitchell : I love viognier
19:36:38 From lori pike : Viognier grows wonderfully in Osoyoos on the Canada/US border. Nice and hot there.
19:36:42 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : if you get a chance, try Adamo Estate Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. Its devine

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, BC V.Q.A., Canada
19:37:14 From lori pike : Syrah Viognier is lovely.
19:37:24 From lori pike : Adds a hint of violet.
19:37:52 From Trent Mayers : Interesting that Viognier is heat tolerant. Is Condrieu warmer than most of Northern Rhone?
19:38:06 From David Skinner : Some of the wild ferment Viognier wines are amazing. I think there are some nice ones in the Barossa.
19:38:10 From lori pike : That is a wine club wine.
19:38:20 From lori pike : The grape is Sémillon.
19:38:39 From Scott Finlayson : Terrafina is the restaurant next door to Hester Creek
19:38:46 From lori pike : Yum.
19:39:22 From Karen Mitchell : BC seems to have so many different varietals.
19:39:30 From Elaine Bruce : The JUDGE is AMAZING
19:39:33 From lori pike : Classic Bordeaux style blend. Merlot, Cab Franc and Cab Sauv.
19:40:31 From lori pike : Oh pretty. This Rosé is slightly off dry.
19:40:32 From Karen Mitchell : mmmmmmmmm.
19:40:53 From Jennifer Havers : Wow, beautiful colour! I think Rosé goes with almost everything!
19:40:56 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : Dark rosé with pork tenderloin or porketta
19:41:35 From lori pike : From Oliver and Osoyoos fruit. Unoaked.
19:41:36 From Karen Mitchell : Such a pretty colour.
19:41:46 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : a stuffed pork roast that is of Italian origin
19:42:14 From lori pike : On my bucket list!
19:42:16 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : yes its stunning
19:42:18 From Trent Mayers : Mosel is on my list!
19:42:22 From Edie : Alcohol abuse,,,pouring out wine!!!
19:42:23 From David Skinner : Rosé with berry pizza. Use mascarpone instead of tomato sauce and sprinkle with field berries. It’s like a big danish!
19:42:29 From Mark Davis : Over 30 years ago.
19:42:30 From Susan Otis : yes, It’s beautiful there
19:42:31 From Elaine Bruce : porchetta = bacon basically w/ the rind. delish but NOT a diet dish
19:42:32 From Pamela Wood : Yes abs blue slate soil beautiful
19:42:34 From Julia Gradwell : ONLY 9% alcohol and $12.95
19:42:36 From Linda Al-Molky to All panelists : I think porchetta is a pork belly roast. You can really get a nice caramelized crisp on it.
Hester Creek Old Vines Block 16 Trebbiano 2020

19:42:52 From Rolande Leblanc : We would see this one paired with seafood, preferably lobster

19:44:47 From Gwen Moran to All panelists : $11 here in PA
19:44:47 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : no that’s pancetta not porketta
19:45:28 From Joann Dnistransky : With all these recommendations…. I have to order a lot more lobster!!
19:45:45 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : porketta is a rolled pork roast with seasoning inside
19:46:21 From Jo-Ann Mellon : Joann, more lobster! Yum.
19:46:29 From Francine Zizzo : Its a pork roast diffidently not bacon, can be stuffed and lots of spices, still can’t get it right

Georges Vigouroux Pigmentum Malbec 2018
Cahors, Rhône A.P., France
19:53:20 From Shelley McDonald : Awesome
19:53:26 From lori pike : Love Malbec intensity!
19:53:51 From Shelley McDonald : So classic and not a fruit punch 🤛 to the nose like the Argentina
19:53:55 From Shelley McDonald : Yes
19:54:05 From Shelley McDonald : Ca-hors
19:54:21 From Trent Mayers : The Black Grape of Cahors.
19:54:25 From Stephane Dubois : pronounce: Ka-Or
19:54:45 From Elaine Saltmarsh : LOL
19:55:02 From lori pike : How much?
19:55:04 From stephen sherry : Vigouroux makes outstanding Malbec at all price points
19:55:11 From Shelley McDonald : Lots of mineralty ?
19:55:16 From Mark Davis : Malbec is so different depending where it is grown. By far, Argentina Malbec is the flagship. Many think it is the elevation and the sun.
19:55:20 From Rolande Leblanc : Thank you Stephanie for the phonetic
19:55:28 From Mike Welling to All panelists : Malbecs are great bbq steak wines!
19:55:36 From Shelley McDonald : Yes thank you
19:55:39 From David Skinner : Malbec is muscular and needs hearty fare to fully express itself.
19:55:47 From Edie : Is that the Atrium Cahors?
19:55:49 From Gus Clemens : minerality can be related to saline/salt, but not quite the same.
19:56:11 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : smell of rocks after the rain
19:56:13 From Shelley McDonald : Flinty , Stoney?
19:56:37 From Joann Dnistransky : Agree Shelley… wet rocks
19:56:55 From David Skinner : Minerality always seems to me to be a sensation rather than a taste or fragrance. It’s a bit of a feeling so to speak.
19:56:56 From Mark Davis : Argentina Malbec and Argentina steak. Amazing.
19:57:09 From Gus Clemens : minerality more smell and texture, while saline is on the palate.
19:57:43 From Trent Mayers : Any Dornfelder in it?
19:57:46 From Christian Boyer : I am drinking the Relax Pinot Noir
19:57:52 From Elaine Bruce : Too funny Natalie – I love the not wet but hot rocks haha
19:58:23 From Julia Gradwell : can be enjoyed slightly chilled..
19:58:24 From Christian Boyer : Really! That is why i couldn’t find it!
19:58:35 From David Skinner : @mark you are absolutely correct. Argentinian beef with chimichurri
19:58:43 From Elaine Bruce : Is that due to the percentage of the primary grape to be labeled as such ?
19:59:16 From Julia Gradwell : Dornfelder 75% and Pinot Noir 25%
19:59:28 From lori pike : Sangria
19:59:33 From Susan Otis : Relax Pinot Noir is $14.10 at the SAQ
19:59:33 From Karen Mitchell : sangria
19:59:34 From Julia Gradwell : Sangria
19:59:54 From Julia Gradwell : $12.95 LCBO
Relax Red Blend
19:59:59 From Gus Clemens : sangria with bad wine is bad sangria
20:00:00 From lori pike : Mulled wine too maybe?
20:00:17 From David Skinner : Off dry and acidity balance is really a key to how we perceive wines with a bit of residual sugar. Some of these wines can be great. Others …. not so much.
20:00:18 From Mark Davis : My wine tours are in Argentina and Chile so I have a little knowledge. Yes, David, chimichurri; yum!
20:00:41 From Elaine Bruce : Albarino is the best white wine with ice cubes. doesn’t lose any taste
20:00:57 From Michael Garboll : Mark Davis what are your wine tours please?
20:01:02 From Mike Welling to All panelists : An ice cube can cover many wine sins!
20:01:18 From Ralf and Elaine Peters : freeze grapes instead of ice cubes
20:01:26 From Elaine Bruce : thx guys – now I want a chimichurri steak
20:01:28 From Julia Gradwell : uncomplicated.. easy to drink!
20:02:00 From Karen Mitchell : I agree Ralph and Elaine! My go to ice cubes in the summer…. GRAPES!
20:02:14 From Mark Davis : Mainly in Argentina and Chile.
20:02:27 From Trent Mayers : It sounds like a nice fruity, quaffable summer red!

20:03:38 From David Skinner : Prefer to keep my wine bottle chilled and only add a little at a time to my glass so it never needs ice. On the other hand…….
