Blasted Church's Heavenly Choir (June 11, 2003)

I know I've made it now – I'm featured on a wine label. Admittedly, it's not a Mouton-Rothschild label – not this time, at least. Blasted Church is an Okanagan winery with a quirky sense of humour. The label of their Pinot Gris 2002 features a choir of wine writers singing their praises. And there I am, joining in the chorus.

Left to right, Tim Pawsey, Robin Mines, Stephen Wong, Jurgen Gothe (bearded), Tony Gismondi, Judith Lane, Tony Aspler (glasses), Memory Walsh, and John Schreiner.

And how is the wine? Here are my notes:

Blasted Church Pinot Gris 2002 (British Columbia)
Palest straw in colour, almost water white; grassy, green berries on the nose, could be mistaken for Sauvignon Blanc in a blind tasting (young vines?). Fresh white peach and honeysuckle flavour, medium-bodied with well extracted fruit, finishes dry with good length. ****
