In a province awash in Pinot Gris this beauty from Okanagan Crush Pad stands out. The name Switchback refers to the organic vineyard where this wine began its life. The dirt truly is reflected in what you’ll taste in the glass. It has the traditional Pinot Gris characteristics of citrus and stone fruit but what really grabs my attention is the more subtle notes of herbs and minerality. There’s also a hint of salinity too that just adds to the complexity of a well made wine. I paired it with lemon chicken and you’ll also want to pour this Pinot Gris with your favorite seafood dishes.
Price: $29.00 plus tax
