Pinot Gris, Hillside Winery, Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley VQA, BC, 2016, 13.7% abv, C$18++

On the eyes, this is a beautiful onion skin tone of pale, translucent orange with aromas of light stone fruit, mandarin citrus and crushed rocks.

The palate is ever-so-slightly off dry with nice acidity and echoes the aromas with flavours of nectarine and ripe apricot, Granny Smith apple, white blossom and a touch of dried herb.

WSET Good plus – held on the skins for four hours to get this beautiful colour before draining and pressing.  What a great little summer wine – refreshing and delicious.
