2018 Louie Pinot Gris - Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery

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! 

Vinification: 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.

Tasting notes: 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!

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.

Serving suggestions: Serve at cellar temperature (55˚F) or just below. 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).
