Wild Goose Vineyards & Winery 2016 Pinot Gris, Okanagan Valley, $17

By on April 11, 2017

Three generations of the Kruger family made this stunning example of Pinot Gris possible, and one of the largest productions of this Burgundian grape in British Columbia ranks among the best in the Pacific Northwest. A bevy of aromas includes lemon, lime, grapefruit and pineapple. This teases the palate into chasing flavors of pineapple, mango, green apple and lemon/lime as its medium body delivers a tart citrusy kick to vanquish the residual sugar of 1.4%. It’s a cheerful treat any time of the year and an ideal partner with cedar-planked salmon, barbecued pork, grilled chicken or pasta dishes with a cream sauce. Wild Goose is organizing distribution into the U.S., starting this summer.
