Generous aromas of pear, apple, and honeysuckle, tinged with hints of lychee and exotic spices. On the palate, the wine is a voluptuous, hedonistic experience, enticingly coating all parts of your mouth, and the generous fruit is held in check with a firm minerality that ensures the wine finishes clean and fresh.This wine pairs well with Asian and classic West Coast cuisine and your patio on a hot summer day. Serve at 8°C.
The 2008 vintage was a very cool one by Okanagan standards.This resulted in the Pinot Gris grapes being harvested from October 10 to 12 - one month later than normal - from Burrowing Owl Vineyards in Oliver. The extra time on the vine allowed for development of generous fruit flavours, and the cooler ambient temperatures ensured those flavours were beautifully preserved.
