ODYSSEY PINOT GRIS
BC VQA Okanagan ValleyPinot Gris grapes were hand-picked from our Estate Vineyard (Block 8) from some of the oldest vines in British Columbia (approximately 40 years old). The Pinot Gris grapes were gently pressed and cool fermented. Sixty percent of the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks for pure fruit expression and the other forty percent was aged in new French oak barrels and a new French oak foudre for ninety days on lees. A partial malolactic fermentation was performed to soften the acidity and round out the mouth-feel. Limited production of 653 cases.
This Pinot Gris has a slight copper rose hue due to the skin’s rosy-grey colour. A ripe fruit aroma of melon, red apple and golden kiwi is accented by a touch of floral. This smooth, slightly rich, medium-bodied wine has just enough acidity to refresh, along with flavours of apple, pear and melon. Notes of orchard fruits, citrus and spice linger on the finish.
A lovely sipping wine for when the best of friends gather. Enjoy with mushroom and onion quiche; smoked salmon quiche; Tilapia baked with leeks and mushrooms; crab stuffed mushroom caps; lightly spiced crab cakes; poached salmon; pan-fried scallops; chicken in a cream sauce; crown roast of pork; black bean dip with unsalted tortilla chips; salmon and cream cheese pin-wheels; hummus and pita chips.
