Pentage Pinot Gris 2012, British Columbia


The Globe and Mail


Yellow-white with coppery-pink highlights, the hue is the product of contact with the grape’s “gris,” or grey, skins. Pentage, an excellent Okanagan producer, strikes fine balance in this mid-weight charmer. It’s an apple, pear and citrus medley, finishing dry, with satisfying grapefruit-rind bitterness. It’s not quite as rich as a typical Alsatian pinot gris, yet far more concentrated and serious than the average pinot grigio (made from the same grape). Available direct from
