This rosé is elegant and light with expressive notes of watermelon, wild strawberry and citrus. Pale pink in colour with an orange hue, it is dry and crisp on the palate with bright fruit flavours, lively acidity and a clean and refreshing finish.
Rosé is an incredibly versatile wine to pair with food. It’s perfect to serve on its own as an aperitif or with light appetizers, charcuterie and cheese. Also, pair with dishes such as grilled salmon, turkey burgers, chicken, pizza and seared tuna.
Picked early in the harvest to help retain crispness and fresh flavours, from vineyard plots designated for rosé. Grapes were pressed shortly after being harvested, and clear juice was fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel, with a small percentage in older oak barrels.
Following fermentation, the wine was assembled, and bottled early in 2019 to help capture the freshness and vibrant fruit character on the palate.
