Pinot Noir Rosé 2018
Out Of Stock
September 13, 2018
Our very first rosé made from our Home Vineyard Pinot Noir block that consists of 5 different clones and vine age of 10 to 29 years old. This pretty rosé has the weight and mouthfeel to pair well with a variety of foods. Think roast pork or BBQ salmon. Red fruits with a nice savoury finish. This is a delicious expression of our Similkameen terroir.
The grapes for this vintage come from 2 of our distinct blocks of Pinot Noir on our home vineyard site on the Cawston Bench. We use our 16 year old block of Dijon clones 113 and 115, and our youngest block of clones 828 and 667 to produce this wine. Each clone brings certain characteristics to increase complexity. Our 9 acre property has nice rich sandy loam soil for 2 to 6 feet in depth depending on which part of the vineyard you are in. This sits on top of what seems to be endless gravel and/or river rock. The result is a moderately vigorous site with great drainage.
The grapes were hand harvested and then gently destemmed and lightly crushed into half ton open top fermenters where they were left on the skins for an average of 18 hours on the skins. The grapes were then pressed straight to tank and settled before inoculation with specific wine yeast. No fining was used. Vegan friendly.
