The Best Wines of 2019

Wild Goose Pinot Gris 2018

 

Wild Goose Vineyards

Located near Okanagan Falls founder Adolf Kruger was one of the leaders in persuading the BC Government to support farm wineries. The Kruger's operate a true family winery of 20 acres. It all began in early 1983 when founder Adolf Kruger purchased a barren piece of land east of Okanagan Falls. Upon his return to his newly purchased property he discovered a large flock of Canada geese feeding in amongst the tumbleweeds, boulders, and rubble. As he approached, the birds took flight. From that time on the property became known as Wild Goose Vineyards.

2018 Pinot Gris, perfection in a bottle. One of the very best wines I have tasted in Years.

It all begins with a sweet honey aroma. Followed by flavours of melon and honey.

The wine is extremely well balanced and finishes with the desire to pour another glass.
