Tantalus Rosé 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThough Tantalus will always be known for their striking riesling (and iconic labels) that brought worldwide acclaim for BC riesling, you shouldn’t write them off as a one-trick pony, as their prowess for cool climate grapes shows throughout their entire portfolio. This singular rosé is from a block of pinot meunier planted in 1985, splashed with a hit of pinot noir. Lovely ripe strawberry, raspberry and sunripened cherry, a wave of fragrant plum, hard berry candy and a waft of wild herbs and citrus peel on the finish.Tasted: 18 April 2015Tasted by: Prices: BC 23.00 winery direct, VQA shops, private wine shops Producer: Tantalus VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
