Review 2018 Rosé

2018 Rosé

C$19.95
(C$19.95 Incl. tax)
New Release! Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are traditional grapes of the Champagne region and are most often paired together in a sparkling wine; however, 2018 marks the first time we have brought Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier together for a still wine.
Description

WINEMAKER'S NOTES

Spending a short time on skins at the start of fermentation, the 2018 Rosé is a delicate, pale salmon colour.  Fermented and aged in stainless steel, this wine has a fresh and fruit driven feel with elegant structure.

On the nose, subtle orchard blossom opens up into more expressive notes of white cherry, peach and nectarine, complemented by a slight touch of dried rosehip.  Bright stone fruit follows through on the palate alongside a pleasant hint of mandarin. Dry with a light body and a lean acidity, this wine has a graceful, smooth finish.

FOOD MATCHES

The 2018 Rosé’s light body and delicate fruit need a pairing of equal weight.  A salad featuring roasted nuts, fresh peach and a light vinaigrette would be a great match.  In terms of protein, think along the lines of grilled scallops, or oven roasted chicken with rosemary.  For cheeses, keep things light and fresh with mascarpone or a whipped goat cheese.
