WineDiva's Review

Refreshing, consistent, zesty. The Heiss family was the first to plant Pinot Gris in Canada and it continues to be a signature wine for that winery, now owned by Andrew Peller. In fact, the name of this 30-year-old winery comes from the Austrian and Hungarian name for the variety, Grauar Monch, which translates to Gray Monk.
Expect honeysuckle and a fruit-cup of peach jellies, warm pears, yellow apples and grapefruit. It's an orchard in a glass with its fruity, citrus palate. Off-dry and supple on the tongue it has a lively zesty finish.
Pair: toasted chicken salad sandwich, spicy crab cakes, coconut curry, mushroom ravioli or grilled white fish.
