About the Wine

Blasted Church Pinot Gris

Blasted Church Pinot GrisWinemaking

The grapes from each vineyard were fermented separately and only blended prior to bottling. Each tank was carefully monitored to ensure cool fermentation temperatures were maintained. A wide range of enzymes and yeast strains were incorporated to achieve maximum aromatics in the wine. This year, the BCV and Matheson Creek parcels of Pinot Gris fruit were left on skins for 4 hours. This process added flavour, structure and a small amount of colour to the finished wine. We added some Chardonnay to increase the acidity and both the Viognier and Gewurztraminer help to lift the aromas.

Harvest Notes

The 2015 Pinot Gris is a great expression of Okanagan Valley Pinot Gris. We have three different vineyards that grow Pinot Gris: Blasted Church, Matheson Creek, and Mountain View. Each provides different aspects, soils, fruit flavor, ripeness and were harvested at different times.

Blasted Church Syrah

Blasted Church SyrahWinemaking

The fruit came from our growers in Osoyoos and Oliver. They were harvested on three separate dates. The first pick of Osoyoos fruit was co-fermented with Viognier to stabilize colour and add aromatics. The other two fruit intakes were pure Syrah. These tanks were cold soaked for 3-5 days while the co-ferment tank was inoculated straight away. All tanks were fermented on untoasted French oak chips to increase wine structure. All three ferments were pressed off when dry, and racked into 225L oak barrels where they underwent malolactic fermentation and then aged in the same barrels for 13 months. We used a mix of French and American oak (40:60) with 20% of these barrels new oak. The wine was removed from barrel back into tank to undergo cold stabilization, filtering and final blending.

Harvest Notes

The 2014 vintage produced a lavish crop of remarkable quality. Our vineyard, which is situated above Skaha Lake on a westerly slope, is an optimal setting for fine wine production. Above average temperatures throughout the spring and summer months, coupled with cool nights, allowed the grapes to flourish throughout the growing season. Long sunny days provided ample opportunity for increased photosynthesis and Brix accumulation. Harvest in the Okanagan began a little early due to a beautiful warm fall, which has resulted in magnificent flavors and strong tannic structures in our wines.

Snow Landing by PAM ANN @ Whistler Conference Centre
Jan 25 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

<Snow Landing by Pam Ann - night of comedy Wed Jan 25 2017

PAM ANN touches down for a SNOW LANDING at Whistler Pride and Ski Festival

Iconic international celebrity airhostess Pam Ann has evolved since first jetting out of her hometown of Melbourne 20 years ago. Pam – the alter-ego of Australian comedian-writer-producer Caroline Reid – has developed a cult like status both here and overseas with her masterful portrayal of an International hostie.

Pam’s barbed wit has seen her fly many a risky route and negotiate even the most politically incorrect flight path with her blisteringly funny take on the world of airlines and aircrew. Nothing is out of reach of her pristine white gloves, strutting up the aisle with a trolley full of beautifully unpredictable, acerbic airline satire. There’s not much Pam hasn’t seen or done – from crewing Elton John’s private jet at his express request, sharing a stadium stage on a tour of the UK with Cher, and counting Madonna in her legion of devoted fans worldwide.

Whistler Pride and Ski Festival is thrilled to welcome this jetsetting airhostess, Pam Ann, back to the resort of Whistler for a night of Comedy – SNOW LANDING by PAM ANN will have you rolling in the aisles!

Pre-boarding starts at 7:30PM at the Whistler Conference Centre
In Flight entertainment begins at 8:00PM
Post Snow Landing party begins at 10:00PM at the CABN at the Aava Whistler Hotel.

Flight Passes now available! Get your tickets now.
