Pinot Gris is a genetic mutation of the black Pinot Noir grape which normally has a grayish-blue fruit, accounting for its name (gris meaning ""gray"" in French) but the grapes can have a brownish pink to black and even white appearance. Unlike the Pinot Grigio style, which is light, fresh and fairly neutral, wines labeled Pinot Gris tend to be more full-bodied, richer, spicier, and more viscous in texture. They also tend to have greater cellaring and ageing potential.
Sourced from the King Family Vineyard close to Naramata and Hidden Terrace Vineyard just north of Oliver. Grapes grown in cooler soils have a more intense and edgy fruit character with a certain amount of fresh liveliness to them.
The nose shows fragrant floral honeysuckle aromas mixed with tangelo and apple notes. Delicious citrus, rock melon and pear with rich caramelized apple flavours. Hints of Turkish delight and rose petals. A smooth, textural wine with fine tannins and a long lingering finish. Suitable for a vegan diet.
