Winemaking

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.
