Kalala 2008 Pinot Gris

Kalala produced one of my favourite BC Rieslings in 2008 (I wrote about it on my old blog; will taste it again soon and report back here).

This is a pale-to-medium straw colour with a very light fruity nose. Dry light-to-medium bodied wine with green apple and grapefruit notes; the apple dominates with a bit of a dull quality but the acidity kicks in to rescue the overall impression with a good length but a lingering leather-ish quality. Enjoyable, but overall not up to the quality I recall from their Riesling. Perhaps it’s partly that I don’t drink much of this varietal. 13.3% alcohol. $20.45 at Crosstown.
