Artist Series No. 16 | Calona Vineyards Artist Series tells a story that begins on the label and finishes on your palate. It’s about award-winning wines and wonderful art brought together to reflect each other’s brilliance. Each painting is carefully selected for the special way it evokes the unique flavour of the wine. Calona Vineyards Artist Series is proud to present BC artist Brittani Faulkes. "The Chateau" portrays the bountiful peace and serenity of a sun-kissed vineyard, and charmingly embodies the summer-fresh lightness of our Pinot Gris. It’s an exhibition of individual taste and a showcase for the wines of Calona Vineyards.
The enticing fruit of this Pinot Gris is preserved through gentle pressing and cool stainless steel fermentation. Pinot Gris has shown itself to be well-suited to the unique microclimates and soils found in British Columbia, producing wines of exceptional intensity and character.
Wonderful aromas of melon, pear, tropical fruit and a hint of spice fill the nose. This medium-bodied wine has a slightly rich mouth-feel and refreshing flavours of melon, tropical fruit and pear. Flavours of lemon, apple, white peach and a dash of spice excite on the finish.
Clear and bright in the glass, just like a perfect summer day.
