This lovely off-dry BC white wine made from the Pinot Gris grape by the Zuppiger Family. Arrowleaf Cellars is nestled in the heart of the Okanagan's Lake Country. The vines are planted in the Wendell, Suncrest and Ritchie estate vineyards. Aromas of peach, Asian pear and melon. Perfect as a chilled aperitif or companion to seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Family-owned and operated by the Zuppiger Family, Arrowleaf Cellars are located in Lake Country with sweeping views over Lake Okanagan. The Pinot Gris grapes for this wine were grown in the winery’s Wendell, Suncrest and Ritchie Vineyards tucked in between Wood Lake, Kalamalka Lake and the northern part of Okanagan Lake. Grapes are hand-harvested, and the wine is produced in stainless steel tank to preserve fresh fruit flavours and vibrancy. The 2017 vintage is barely off-dry, crisp and juicy with ripe red apple, pear, peach, citrus zest and soft floral flavours on the palate. The wine finishes clean, crisp and harmonious with a medium-plus length. This is a summertime Pinot Gris that can easily be had on its own, or with fresh salads and cucumber sandwiches with a light citrus mayo dressing.
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Not your average Pinot Gris! Very aromatic with floral notes, sweet apple and white stone fruit. Fermentation and aging in stainless steel imparts crisp acidity and lets the pure fruit flavours shine through. Light bodied, 12.6% alcohol and slightly off-dry with 8.8 g/l of sugar. The perfect foil with asian cuisine. I enjoyed a chilled glass all on its own on a warm summer evening on my deck. Tasted June 29, 2018.
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Nice structured and expressive Pinot Gris. Slightly off-dry with aromas of lime rind, lemon blossom and pear. Pair with pasta and smoked salmon. Tasted July 2028
