2017 Rose Image

2017 Rose

 This year our Rosé is made almost entirely of Pinot Noir, but with a splash of Barbera (3.0%), to give it backbone and elevate the fruit, as well as adding a touch of spiciness.  The grapes sourced for this wine came from the Rubis, Flaherty and Tightrope vineyards in Naramata.  They were handpicked, crushed and left on skins to cold soak for 1-2 days before being pressed.  After the juice had settled it was cool fermented, in stainless steel, at 14°C.  It took 30 days to complete.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This year our Rosé is made almost entirely of Pinot Noir, but with a splash of Barbera (3.0%), to give it backbone and elevate the fruit, as well as adding a touch of spiciness. This wine has aromas of violets, pink grapefruit and cranberry, while on the palate there is raspberry, strawberry, rhubarb and a hint of spice. It is the perfect summer sipper to enjoy with friends at the beach, at the cottage or on your favorite patio.
