PINOT GRIS
The grapes used in the Pinot Gris were selected from vineyards in the northern Okanagan Valley. The grapes were picked at over 22 Brix. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation in order to retain maximum freshness. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks.

"The wine shows a delicate bronze blush in the glass. It has aromas of fine herbs, citrus and citrus peal. On the palate, the wine has a luscious texture with flavours of pear, apple and white peach. The wine is well balanced, with the residual sweetness plumping up the fruit in the classic Gray Monk style. 90 points."
- John Schreiner
MERLOT
Grapes from the southern Okanagan Valley were used for the Merlot. The juice underwent malolactic fermentation for 2-3 weeks and was then aged in oak barrels for 8 months. Before bottling the wine went through fining and minimal filtration to enhance varietal characteristics.

Rich ruby colour with an attractive berry/cherry nose. Medium bodied with berry/chocolate flavour and a touch of vanilla spice oak, set over mellow tannins and acids. A long awaited “warm” and satisfying Okanagan red wine to pair with beef, pork roast, lamb, braised veal or venison.

About our featured Gray Monk Estate Winery, producing award winning wines from Napa North!

The Heiss family moved to the Okanagan Valley from Europe via Edmonton, Alberta with dreams of owning a successful vineyard. In 1972, George & Trudy Heiss were at the front of the line presenting their request to be allowed to make (and sell) wine from their own grapes. That began the Estate Winery program - which many believe was the turning point for British Columbia Wines.
