Kettle Valley Pinot Gris 2019 - 375 ml
The grapes for this wine come from the following vineyards, Gill in Osoyoos, Pereira and Secord in the Similkameen Valley, and the Cossentine vineyard in Penticton. The grapes were handpicked and then crushed and left on the skins to cold soak for three days prior to being pressed off. A portion of this wine has been barrel fermented before being blended with wine that was fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Drawing its name from the Kettle Valley Railway, which traveled through the Naramata area on the east side of Okanagan Lake, the winery opened to the public in 1996. Kettle Valley Winery is known for it’s dark, intense and well structured red wines, including Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and blends such as “Old Main Red”. Chardonnay has been the main white wine produced, but in recent years Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc have also proved popular. They are all flavourful and aromatic, with a rich mouth feel.
