VINEYARD
Switchback Organic Vineyard is surrounded by sage, bunch grass, ponderosa pine, and fruit trees which bring out hallmark aromas in wines from this site. The vineyard was planted 100% with clone 52 Pinot Gris in 2006 and has been farmed organically since 2011. The south east facing site is planted 15° off north south. The soil composition includes silt, gravelly soils with rocks encased in limestone.

WINEMAKING
Harvested in four separate batches in October, our estate grown organic Pinot Gris was whole cluster pressed to concrete tanks where it was fermented using native yeasts. The wine went through full malolactic fermentation and was left on gross lees for 10 months.

WINE PROFILE
The wine has a creamy mouthfeel with lively acidity and displays citrus and stone fruit characters with hallmark Okanagan herbal notes on the palate.
