Our Rosé is a blend of Pinot Noir and Barbera. This wine has aromas of raspberry, pink grapefruit, and lemon-lime, with a hint of spice. It is a perfect summer sipper to enjoy with friends at the beach, at the cottage or on you favorite patio.

The grapes were sourced for this wine from the Tightrope vineyard, three vineyards in Naramata and a small vineyard in Summerland.
This year our Rose is made almost entirely of Pinot Noir, but with a splash of Barbera (5.0%), to give it backbone and elevate the fruit, as well as adding a touch of spiciness. They were handpicked, crushed and left on skins to cold soak for 4 days before being pressed. After the juice had settled it was cool fermented, in stainless steel, at 12 degrees celsius. It took 21 days to complete.
