CedarCreek Estate Winery Pinot Gris, Okanagan Valley BC, 2010
Readers rated this wine:
2010 marks ex Hillebrand and Thirty Bench winemaker, Darryl Brooker's first complete vintage in his new Okanagan home and he's off to a great start with this very satisfying Gris. It's a very fragrant version offering gobs of ripe Bartlett pear, honey, apple blossoms and a hint of vanilla caramels. There is a plush, rounded weight on the palate with impressive fruit concentration and lively acidity to balance.
12% Chardonnay added.
Perfect paired with an Alsatian onion and cheese tart.
