Haywire Switchback Organic Vineyard Pinot Gris 2015

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe site is encircled by natural vegetation including sage, bunch grass, ponderosa pine and fruit trees that all appear in the wine, but the flavours are more terroir than fruit and frankly, pleasantly complex. The site is planted to clone 52 Pinot Gris, now ten years old and just hitting its stride. The wine goes through full malolactic and is aged in concrete tanks for ten months on its gross lees. Intense herbal aromas mix with floral leesy notes flecked with honeysuckle and peach. Love the complexity here that takes this label to a completely different level.
