Rosé

Our 2016 Rosé is bright, approachable and fruit-forward. This easy-going dry Rosé is a classic summer thirst quencher that delivers on flavour and value.

Tasting & Pairing

Pale pink in colour, the glass is brimming with Okanagan summer red berries, pink grapefruit and a touch of white pepper spice that entices to a fresh dry finish. The perfect pairing for being on a patio or poolside.

Winemaking

This year’s Rosé is a blend of Gamay Noir (70%), Pinot Noir (20%) and Pinot Gris (10%). After being harvested, the grapes were destemmed and crushed in the press, then cold soaked overnight – the clear juice drew flavour and colour from the darker grape skins before pressing and settling. After racking, the juice was fermented cold to help its fruity characteristics to shine. The varietals were kept separate during fermentation then blended together before bottling.
