SKIPPING INTO SPRING, 89PT PINOT GRIS
White-fleshed orchard fruit, like peach, pear and apple, with a hint of beeswax. Traces of ginger offer a kick, with a touch of acidity in the finish, leaving you refreshed.
Oysters, all kinds of pork, and spicy chicken tacos. Perfect with stinky artisanal cheeses and warm canapés.
Playing hide and seek with spring.
Why we're drinking this
This elegant wine will equally please a room for a light-hearted get-together, or a white-linen table of refined palates. Malivoire winemaker Shiraz Mottiar has crafted a delightfully refreshing white, that has the texture and weight to make it an ideal dinner companion. At the same time, it has bright florals and subtle sweetness to make for a delightful spring-time wine. Either way, it brings cheer. Grab a chilled glass of the juice, your Canada Goose jacket and pretend that spring has arrived in Canada until it is finally here to stay.
This Pinot Gris has an aroma of citrus curd and honey. There’s a little quince in there too, offering a nice sweet-spicy beat. You’ll get the same on the palate. With good weight, supple texture, and refreshing acidity, this is a wine you’ll sip again and again. Just remember to take a breath and enjoy its long finish, where a little kiss of sweetness awaits.
