Fresh, balanced, juicy.
O'Rourke's and Peak Cellars is owned by Edmonton businessman Dennis O'Rourke who maintains a 300-acre property of vineyards and orchards called Carrs Landing, and 7-acres around the Peak Cellars Winery in Lake Country; in total, 110-acres of estate vines.
Skin kissed refers to the Pinot Gris juice having time in contact with the skins, the weight of the whole clusters of grapes in the tank lightly crushing those beneath and allowing the skin colour to bleed into the juice.
The shade is a pale apricot and the aromas are just as pretty; apple blossoms and orange segments, white pepper and pine needles on the forest floor. It's dry and juicy, crisp and precise with a slick woven palate. Lovely balance.
