I’m introducing a new feature to my website and I’m calling it “splurge.” With all the money you save by buying wines I review on CheapandCheerful.ca you deserve a reward. So these wines are above my $25 limit but worth every penny. The first “splurge” pick is this beauty from Haywire. I love seafood and this Pinot Gris is the perfect companion. It’s a complex, medium bodied wine with depth and polish. Flavours of peach and apple plus a touch of tropical fruit that’s enhanced by aging in the concrete tanks at Okanagan Crush Pad. There’s a lot to this white which reflects quality winemaking. Add in the creamy finish and it means each sip is a treat on so many levels.
