100 % Naramata Village grown, cold soaked on the skin.
$22 at the winery/12% ABV
Clear, bright, pale hint-o-salmon colour.
On the nose:

This Pinot Gris was great with the grilled salmon. I'd like to give it a second try with grilled bone-in pork chops and a tart chunky apple-ginger sauce.
À Votre Santé!
