Expressive, pristine, concentrated. Spearhead's winery and home vineyard (the Gentleman Farmer Vineyard) are located in South East Kelowna but they also have Coyote Vineyard in West Kelowna and the Golden Retreat Vineyard near Summerland, where this Pinot Gris hails from. The grapes are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed; 90% is cold fermented in stainless steel, the remaining in 2-year-old French oak barrels.
The purity of this wine is constantly noteworthy. Expect sweet tree fruits (think peach, pear and golden apples), zesty citrus and honeysuckle on the nose. It is crunchy and precise with a mouthwatering finish. It also has concentration length and levity.
Pair: Crab cakes served with spicy peach salsa, chicken salad or creamy pastas.
