Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: a Pinot Gris from one of Canada’s best wineries
By Tony Aspler
Undoubtedly, the most spectacular winery in Canada is Mission Hill in B.C. Winemaker John Simes has a way with Pinot Gris. His 2010 is light straw in colour with a minerally, peach-pit nose. The wine is dry and medium-bodied, with white peach, pear and citrus flavours that sustain well on lively acidity.
Food match: grilled fish or a runny camembert
Mission Hill Pinot Gris 2010, British Columbia, $19.95. Vintages #537076
