Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Whereas a lot of Niagara Pinot Gris only makes a skirting pass at the complexity and body a well made Pinot Gris can deliver, Prince Edward County consistently impresses with their understanding about the importance of harvesting not too early or too late, neutral oak, and extremely long cold-maceration periods on the skin. It might also be the ideal climate and small production that give us concentrated examples, such as this. Lighthall demonstrates all this perfectly. Very well made.
The colour is very pale yellow with a white rim - surprisingly glass coating, though.
The aromas deliver quite a bit. Fuji apple, acacia, apricot, almond, muskmelon, coconut meat, and table grape. There's evidence of PEC limestone from the minerality, too.
Expect flavours of apple skin/applesauce, lime, tangerine, citrus peel, honeycomb, with a combo of the minerality and acid on the finish. Great stuff!
Interesting enough to stand alone, as something to sip. Try kettlecorn for something light alongside.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Dry and aromatic with plenty of citrus; white grapefruit, pomelo, and lime zest. Pronounced crushed granite/limestone minerality. Great to pair with grilled cod steak and citrus salsa.
