Wild Goose Vineyards Pinot Gris Mystic River Vineyard 2011

Member Review by zufrieden:

Lovely citrus, apple pie spice and soft white fruit such as pear on the nose. On entry, there are obvious Pinot Gris characteristics such as grapefruit and pear with a hint of shaved almond bitterness; fresh and slightly dilute with a sweet, medium finish, this wine is a gem. Good luck finding a full case. 90 points.

After the land had been purchased, Riesling and Gewurztraminer were planted and a contract was secured with Mission Hill wines. Over the next few years Mission Hill produced outstanding wines from the vineyards of Wild Goose. In the late eighties Adolf Kruger had a plan that would allow for the establishment of small wineries that would produce wines from grapes grown on site and sold through the "farm gate." Adolf, along with two other interested parties approached the government and presented them with their ideas, and after much lobbying and persistence, the farm gate winery in British Columbia was born!! It all began in early 1983 when founder Adolf Kruger purchased a barren piece of land east of Okanagan Falls. Upon his return to his newly purchased property it was here that he discovered a large flock of Canada geese feeding in amongst the tumbleweeds, boulders, and rubble. As he approached, the flock of geese took flight and flew to the north. From this time on the property became known as Wild Goose Vineyards!! Wild Goose was established in June 1990 when the first production of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Marechal Foch hit the marketplace. The consumer quickly grasped onto the concept of small wineries. Visit the valley, spend some time on the beach, play a little golf, and tour wineries. In no time at all Wild Goose began reeling in new customers, people who enjoyed wines, touring, and visiting with the Kruger family. Over the years Wild Goose would establish itself as one of the premium small producers of VQA wines in British Columbia. Read less
