Indigenous World Pinot Gris, 2017

PG in BC is up and down.  Most bottles promise a lot, the fruit, the blossoms, the herbs.  And then in the end some soar, others tread water.  We bought this bottle as a novelty, based on a recommendation to try a First Nations venture near Kelowna; it was just a one off and I forgot about it and then I drank it and I thought wow, how satisfying.  Jason Parkes, another novelty in BC wines (songwriter, musician, vintner of all things, and award winning in each) had his hand in the pie.

 

I think I will put aside all qualifications on this wine.  It’s not my current favorite BC PG, it’s not my favorite PG period, but we started this blog to highlight value, and to call out overpriced plonk and ludicrous reviews that are divorced from the average drinker and this bottle is all about value: decent wine at an affordable price.  Six for the patio, and that’s just July.

 

Price: Around $18.  Stunning.

 

Market Liquidity: You can do better, but at twice the price, and this is better than half the value of those twice as much.
