Cedarcreek Estate Winery Estate Select Pinot Gris 2006

External Review:

Pinot Gris is perhaps the default white for the anything-but-Chardonnay crowd, one reason why this variety has become the second most widely-planted white in British Columbia. Somewhat earlier to ripen than Chardonnay, it grows well in most British Columbia regions – although the different terroirs produce huge variations, from lush and fruity in the Okanagan to crisply tart on Vancouver Island. Pinot Gris consumers need to decide which winery’s style suits their tastes and their cuisine.CedarCreek’s style is consistent. Winemaker Tom Di Bello gets most of the grapes from CedarCreek’s north Okanagan vineyards – the one at the winery and the Greata Ranch vineyard on the west shore of Okanagan Lake. Cooler than the south Okanagan, these vineyards always deliver grapes with vibrantly fresh flavours. Di Bello does a cool ferment, largely in stainless steel. But he likes to include a touch of oak aging to complex the wine with toasty and spicy notes.This wine begins with citrus aromas. The flavours include citrus, peaches and pears, with a touch of anise on the finish. Medium-bodied, the wine is refreshingly fruity and crisp. 87 points.
