Reviews and Ratings

Julian Park rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Citrus aromas with honeydew melon.
On the palate, Granny Smith apple, melon, honey and mandarin orange and a hint of toasted chestnut on the back of the tongue. The wine is medium-bodied, well-balanced and textured mouthfeel with a short dry finish.

The wine paired perfectly with pan-fried halibut and salad.
Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Sperling Vineyards 2018 Pinot Gris is fresh, crisp and elegant. Soft orange blossom, ripe pear and mineral aromas on the nose, medium-bodied, dry (1.2 g/l residual sugar) and refreshing, this is a Pinot Gris with finesse, soft white florals, succulent pear leading into clean mineral flavours on the palate. Beautifully-balanced with a medium-plus mineral and orange zest finish. I love this clean and refined style of Pinot Gris.

Sperling Winery and Vineyards are certified organic by Pro-Cert. Pinot Gris grapes make up 30% of the winery's plantings and the PG grapes for this vintage were sourced from the highest-altitude block in the vineyard that were hand-harvested in the cool of the morning. The wine is fermented out dry with no malolactic fermentation. Unpretentiously classy. Chill and enjoy on its own, but delicious with pan-fried Arctic Char filets.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Aromas of pear, peach, and honey with soft floral hints. Light to medium bodied with medium acidity, and a creamy texture on the palate, along with fresh and bright fruit notes and a bit of minerality on the finish. Enjoy with any white fish or seafood dishes.
