A lovely BC pinot Gris with aromas of ripe melon. The grapes are sourced from the winery's Star Block estate vineyard. Pair with fresh seafood.

Pinot Gris food pairings: sunshine and a patio on a hot summer's day.

Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This BC wine from Penticton is off dry with aromas of melon and stone fruit. Lush mouthfeel with citrus flavours and a medium finish that leaned toward bitter almond. This would be a great pairing with Asian food - say a Thai Chicken Green curry. Tasted March 20, 2017
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Tropical fruit is peeking through the dusty, minerally, zestiness of this Pinot Gris. A hint of bitterness on the finish. Best with light fish and salad dishes. March 2017
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Green apple and lime on the nose with a hint of sourdough bread. Lots of lime zest on the finish. Pair this with ceviche. Tasted March 2017.
Taste: Intense aromas of peach, apricot, and pear. The palate is broad with rich mouth feel and crisp, citrus infused acidity. Long finish with a hint of honey and spice.

Pairing: Works well with white meats, spicy, Asian inspired dishes, or simply served on its own.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
