Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah
Rose Wine
Winemaker's Comments: A method known as Saignee or bleeding was used to draw juice from the grapes prior to fermentation. Specially selected rosé yeast strains were used for its serious berry fruit flavours. This year Cinsault leads our blend, adding perfume on the nose and freshness and fruit to the palate. The use of a little more Grenache Noir also contributes to the abundant red berry character of the wine. The blend was cold-fermented in stainless steel prior to sterile filtration and bottling.

Wine Spectator Notes : A friendly and forward rosé, with a medium-weight, rounded feel to the mix of watermelon and white cherry fruit flavors. A light savory flash keeps this just honest enough. Drink now.

Tasting Notes : The nose is complex and forthcoming, offering red plums, cranberry, pomegranate and enticing spicy aromas. Fresh cherries and the red fruit of the nose follow through onto a very balanced, well-rounded, smooth palate, also showing dark berry fruit, nectarine and white cling peach flavours. The wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and textured with integrated natural acidity. It ends clean and fresh with an attractive dark berry note and hints of exotic spices and stone fruit. Great mouthfeel and complexity for a wine made in this style and a very versatile partner to everything from seafood to hot Thai dishes.
