2022 Pinot Gris - Saison Vineyard

2022 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.

Anthony Gismondi, Gismondi on Wine - 91points "Unsworth has worked with Saison Vineyard pinot gris since 2010, and the relationship has led to a Saison Vineyard single vineyard label. The Saison effect is an increase in intensity, and delicacy. It is primarily fermented in stainless steel with a minor amount of neutral French oak (10%). The style is coastal electric with a silky, leesy undercurrent to keep it running through the palate. Some think these wines are too skinny, but they would be wrong. A chiselled, clean finish lingers with a scent of the sea that few places can match. The soils are volcanic, layered with marine sediments and gravel carved and deposited by glaciers. Today, clay loams lay on top of this gravelly base, sitting between the 48th and 50th parallel, only a few kilometres from the ocean."
Tasting Notes
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.
Vineyard Notes
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.
