100% Pinot Noir
The Pinot Noir for this wine is grown expressly for Rosé, which means it is picked earlier than it would be if it was destined for our Pinot Noir. This earlier picking results in more finesse and elegance in the wine. After being harvested, the grapes were destemmed and put in the press where they had two hours of skin contact before being pressed off. Fermentation was 100% stainless steel to allow for a fresh, crisp finished wine.
This is a beautiful pale pink with a slight salmon hue. The nose is heavily influenced by flowers and strawberry with a strawberry cream palate. Finish is light and refreshingly dry.
Above average Growing Degree Days in the spring contributed to an early budbreak. Cooler days and evenings arrived in August, which slowed down the ripening of the grapes and allowed for greater flavour development while retaining freshness and acidity.
Enjoy now or until Christmas 2019.
