Bright aromas of wild flowers and ruby red grapefruit, red cherry and blood orange on the palate, and juicy finish that goes on and on... This Rose is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc, with a small amount of floral whites -- Muscat Ottonel & Viognier.
GOLD - 2022 All Canadian Wine Championship
A premium block of Merlot was crushed directly to the press, given minimal skin contact, then pressed and blended with small portions of juice drained (saignée) during cold soak from blocks of Merlot (68%), Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Fermented cool in stainless steel leaving a small amount of residual sugar (10 g/L) remaining, for an off-dry finish. A bit of Muscat Ottonel and Viognier were blended in to enhance the floral aromas.
