Gray Monk 2007 Pinot Auxerrois

Tried this a few years ago (perhaps the 2005) and enjoyed it. This one is a medium gold colour. A Chardonnay-like nose (according to Wikipedia, Auxerrois Blanc is “a full sibling of Chardonnay,” though Winegeeks says it’s a Pinot Noir), with peach and a hint of sweetness. Very smooth on the palate, with nice acidity balancing Okanagan fruit flavours, apple and peach—and a nice black licorice finish. This one was a gift. 11.4% alcohol. See Gray Monk Estate Winery.
