2016 Pinot Gris VQA Beamsville Bench

Pinot Gris is an interesting grape varietal, as it can produce multiple styles of wine ranging from the light and fruity Pinot Grigio to the dry austere Pinot Gris.  We have attempted to bridge the gap between said styles by creating a wine that is somewhere between a Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.

The core of this wine is our Beamsville Bench fruit.  This fruit is always robust and full of character due to the heavy clay loam the vines contend with.  We cool ferment and skin soak the berries to achieve colour, while maintaining a solid fruit structure.  We then take that fruity wine and age it slowly in mature oak barrels.  This aging process develops the mid-palate giving the wine added structure and finesse, without imparting an overwhelming oaky character.

The nose features a bouquet of peach, honey, rose and green tea leaf.  Hints of vanilla are also imparted by the French oak used in maturation.  The palate is very well balanced in acidity, body, and warmth.

With a weighty mouth feel and fruit forward finish, this Pinot Gris is an excellent food companion.  Pair it with your favourite salmon or poultry dish.  We also recommend pairing with a wild mushroom risotto or pork tenderloin.
