A very Alsatian style of wine with spice, perfume and peaches on the nose. Soft and full on the palate but showing complexity and mouth filling flavors. Stainless steel fermented with no barrel contact.
  Pinot Gris
This wine is a complex fruity mouthful with peach and citrus overtones. It was barrel fermented and has gone through malo/lactic fermentation. It was in neutral French oak for eight months.
  Pinot Noir
This wine is the first release of Averill Creek Pinot Noir. It was produced from third year fruit and reflects the youth of the vines. The wine is elegant with soft fruit on the palate. The nose is very typical of Cowichan Pinots, redolent of plums and black cherry aromas.
