Blue Mountain Reserve Pinot Gris

1725.  2008 Blue Mountain Reserve Pinot Gris (Okanagan Valley)

I was a little concerned about the age of this wine - seeing as how it was a 2008 Pinot Gris. I wouldn't normally age any Pinot Gris this long but sometimes a bottle can get hidden away. All we could do now is check it out. The worst thing that could happen is that we have to dump it.

Luckily, no dumping was necessary. The wine had weathered the storm.  It wasn't exactly the brightest of fruit but there was still plenty of lively acidity remaining. It's nice to see that even BC whites can handle a bit of age on them. I think I'll try to stick to drinking the whites in a more au courant fashion however - although there may be some exceptions on select Chardonnays and/or Rieslings.
