Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I always love my chance to taste VQA from BC. #FreeMyGrapes.
A quality Pinot Gris from start to finish and excellent value from the Okanagan. A ripe nose of peach, apple and honey entice the sipper. The palate offers bright acidity with stone fruit, floral, green apple and some minerality. I detected a little tannin. A nice lingering honey dipped apple awaits you. Pair with seafood, shellfish, or a warm patio.
Tasted: March 2015
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This British Columbia Pinot Gris shows bright pear on nose. The palate gives lots of granny smith apple, pear and citrus lemon. Medium granny smith apple finish.
The grapes used in the 2013 vintage of this BC Pinot Gris were selected from vineyards in the northern Okanagan Valley and picked at over 22 Brix. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation in order to retain maximum freshness and was fermented in stainless steel tanks. - Community Wine Reviews
