We are talking today on the radio show about enjoying some wonderful summer sippers.
I have to thank Linda, a friend of ours for bringing over this bottle of wine last week which I had never had the pleasure to taste.Thank you Linda!
It’s a pretty wine,pinkish and coppery in colour although they call it a white wine, not a rosé but the hue of pink is due to the grape it is made of Pinot Gris,which otherwise is known to most as Pinot Grigio.
It is the Kacaba Vineyards Jennifer’s Pinot Gris 2014. Kacaba Vineyards and Winery located on the Niagara Escarpment Bench in Vineland. The fruit was hand harvested then permitted to cold soak for twelve hours to achieve its bronze and copper hue before undergoing a gently hole berry pressing.
I found this wine quite elegant.It was fruit forward with touches of pink grapefruit, some red fruit and had a refreshing acidity. Much more going on in the glass than a lot of Pinot Grigios out there. I really enjoyed this Pinot Gris!
