2018 The Louie Pinot Gris


Our 2018 The Louie Pinot Gris is named for Sue-Ann's Great-great Uncle Lewis. Although the wine is weighty and round, Louie was the exact opposite! 

Our Louie Pinot Gris is a well-muscled, full-bodied, oak-aged wine. It is big, bold, and bodacious -- a wonderful white wine for red wine lovers. 

 

We made the 2018 Pinot Gris from hand-picked 100% estate grown fruit, located in the Vinemount Ridge sub-appellation. The grapes were whole cluster pressed in a one-ton basket press before fermentation and aging in French and American oak. 

 

 

The Louie boasts powerful flavours on the nose and palate. Aromatics of warm vanilla, clean wood, and spiced poached pear leap from the glass. The wine is round, smooth, and weighty on the palate, with suggestions of baked apples, spice, and a hint of citrus zest. It is wonderful on its own, but it is even better with cheese & charcuterie, roast poultry or pork, or the classic Alsatian-style flammekueche (bacon and onion flatbread). 

 

  • Alc 13%
  • RS 7.4 g/l 

 

Powerful honeyed orchard fruit, spice and toasty vanilla oak nose and palate. Weighty finish. ~ 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards
