Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2013 Rosé opens with strawberry confectionary, notes of Alpine meadow flower and blueberry undertones. Baked strawberry and rhubarb pie is elegantly woven with a hint of gooseberries culminating in a long lingering finish. Our Rosé is always a wonderful aperitif or a delicious pairing with a charcuterie plate of prosciutto, salamis, pickles & olive tapenade. You can also try it with grilled chicken, olive oil poached tuna on a bed of radicchio salad. This wine is meant to be consumed early while the flavours are crisp and vibrant.
Winemaker Notes
This Rosé is a blend of Gamy Noir (60%), Pinot Noir (30%) and Pinot Gris (10%). After being harvested the grapes were destemmed and crushed in the press then cold soaked for 2-4 hours allowing the clear juice to draw flavour and colour from the darker grape skins before pressing and setting. After racking the juice is inoculated with vigorous yeast strains and fermented cold to enhance the high tone varietal character. The varietals are kept separate during fermentation then blended together prior to bottling for optimal aromatic complexity.
Food Pairing Notes
Light garden salads, oysters, spicy Asian cuisine or sipped on its own
