Blue Grouse Quill Rosé 2014

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaThis medium pink hued rosé was sourced from Vancouver Island's Cowichan Valley. Eighteen hours of skin contact amp up the intensity and colour a bit, as well as gives up a gentle riff of tannins. After initial reductive notes, pretty, gentle strawberries, raspberries, tart rhubarb and orange peel emerge. The light bodied, lean palate carries a cushion of lees and underripe pear. Crisp and dry. #GoGamayGo.Tasted: 09 December 2015Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
