Screaming Frenzy 2019 Pinot Gris

Screaming Frenzy 2019 Pinot Gris

the vineyards: 

Jagger Rock & Monarch Vineyard

the region: 

60% Similkameen & 40% Osoyoos

the taste: 

This Gris is just a little weightier than you might expect, a little more puckering than you had planned on & yet seemingly sweet just the same. Abound with classic characteristics of crisp pink apples and that nuttiness/almond-like goodness. Well rounded in texture & weight, with enough acid to make it bright & brilliant. A classic fruit-bomb with a little more volume on the whole.

technical data: 

T.A.:7.3g/litre, pH: 3.43, Alc.: 13.0%

the label: "Monkey Business" 

Another subtext fueled enigma really, an irreverent ode to icons historical, of present/perpetual nature and of this "monkey business" in summation. The stories the Friar of Flavour would weave, the tumultuous tales to be told if it were not for his monastic vow of silence and servitude to the greatness of Gris. What is left unsaid, says so much...or so they say...don't they say that?
