River Stone Malbec Rosé 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTed and Lorraine Kane's vineyard and winery is located south of the mighty McIntyre Bluff and just north of Oliver on deep rock and glacier-laid gravel soils - prime grape growing territory. Deeply hued, there is ample currant, violet, tart rhubarb jam, cranberry, raspberry and leafy notes here, with hints of blueberry blossoms on the nose and finish. Bright acidity, fuller body and slight tannins mean this will stand up to chicken burgers, grilled tuna or salmon steaks just fine. Bold if not unique.Tasted: 01 October 2014Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 20.00 winery direct, VQA stores, private liquor stores Producer: River Stone Estate WineryDistributors: Lifford Wine and Spirits
