2020 Pinot Gris - Saison Vineyard
Unsworth has worked with Saison Vineyard Pinot Gris since our first vintage in 2010 and they have consistently been the backbone of the fruit sourcing. As our estate vineyards have matured and are yielding high quality fruit we wanted to celebrate the special terroir of Saison, thus deciding to make this single vineyard Pinot Gris. It is dry and bright on the palate with a great breadth of flavour and even more vibrant notes of salinity, ripe citrus and apple.

90% stainless steel fermented and aged with 10% neutral French oak and extended lees contact..
On the nose bright aromas of fresh pear, green apple and citrus followed by flavours of orchard fruit and delicate notes of fennel and herbs with distinctively pronounced Vancouver Island minerality and a long finish.
With southern exposure and a free draining soil type we love the breadth and ripeness of flavours achieved from Saison Vineyard fruit.
Food Pairing Notes
This Pinot Gris is fantastic will all types of shellfish, especially clams and mussels in an aromatic broth and grilled baguette.
