Pour Decisions | Red Rooster Pinot Gris

Today’s Pour Decision is the classic Pinot Gris from Red Rooster. Red Rooster is a winery located in the Okanagan Valley.

From their website: “Clear and bright with a fresh, clean aroma of peach, melon, pear, yellow apple and marzipan. This rooster shows a slightly rich, round fleshy profile with peach, melon and a hint of spice on the palate. Then refreshing notes of orange, tangerine, lemon drop and yellow plum ‘take flight’ on the finish.”

I definitely tasted the notes of melon in this pinot gris, which is not a flavour I don’t think has ever really jumped out at me in a wine before. It’s also very citrusy and fresh. It’s aromatic and very flavourful. This is absolutely one I would reach for again.

This Pinot Gris from Red Rooster has an alcohol content of 13.5%
