Additional Information on Mission Hill Winery Pinot Gris Reserve 2013

Winery: Mission Hill Winery

Varietal: Pinot Gris

The rise in popularity of Pinot Grigio (also known as Pinot Gris) wines over the past decade has led to this particular grape varietal being planted in many countries around the world in enormous quantities. These grapes range in color from grayish blue to lilac and amber, and with many shades in between. However, they are most prized for their wide range of flavors and aromas, and their relatively high level of 'transparency', or the ability to put across elements of their terroir in the bottle. The Pinot Grigio varietal also has a relatively high natural sugar content, which means that wineries have plenty of scope when it comes to processing their juices, resulting in semi-sweet Pinot Grigio wines, or very lean, crisp and dry examples depending on how much fermentation has been allowed.

Country: Canada

Canada is not a country many people readily associate with wine production and vineyard cultivation, although it has been successfully producing a range of quality wines for over two hundred years. Many of the wineries in Canada are used exclusively for the production of ice wine, a special style of wine which involves allowing the grapes to freeze in the early frost, thus intensifying the sugars and natural flavors of the grapes. However, recent years have seen wineries in several parts of the country producing more traditional styles of wines, using a blend of traditional and modern techniques and methods to achieve excellent results. The vast majority of Canadian wineries are located in British Columbia and Ontario, although everywhere from Quebec to the shores of Lake Erie also have well established wineries producing characterful Canadian produce.
