Lovely texture on this Pinot Gris from Mission Hill with ripe stone fruit and pear aromas on the nose, zesty with and leesy on the palate finishing citrusy with a clean minerality. A portion of the grapes were barrel fermented and aged four months in oak.

Pinot Gris food pairings: feta cheese stuffed turkey burger, roast lemon-rosemary chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Potent peach jam and peach blossom aromatics with suggestions of lemon and lees. Good texture with a round mouthfeel and diverse, dry palate. Look for citrus, stone fruit, and subtle spice flavours, with the ginger and spice notes picking up in the finish. Great complexity and length. Fruit was sourced from 30 different microclimates, with only small amounts of premium fruit chosen. 15% oaked, with 5% new and 10% neutral. Natural pairing with roasted chicken or turkey, pleasant with seared fish, and not out of place with creamy pasta dishes.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale and clear lemon in the glass. Aromatic & complex nose of peaches and stone fruits. Palate leans toward wet stone and is not as fruity as suggested by the nose. Medium weight and balanced with a long finish. A touch more acid would have made this a wine that demands attention. Nonetheless it would be a delight to sip on its own just for the nose! Tasted April 2019.
From Mission Hill in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, their 2017 Pinot Gris is medium-bodied, creamy with ripe pear, red apple, soft spice, tropical flavours and earthy-mineral notes on the palate. So easy to enjoy. Chill and enjoy with pan-fried trout or Dore. - Community Wine Reviews
