Seven Directions Fruitvale Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Franc Rosé 2015

West Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom BC's first and only exclusively rosé winery, this light pale peach hued cabernet franc rosé is from Osoyoos' Fruitvale Ridge Vineyard. Seven year old vines from predominantly rocky shale, this is whole cluster pressed and then cool fermented in stainless steel to preserve delicate sunripened strawberry, rhubarb, green melon and apricot. A bitter clementine cut lingers on the dry, slightly warm finish. Dry and clean, and fantastic value, we need to see much more of this style in BC please.Tasted: 31 May 2016Tasted by: Prices: BC 14.69 winery direct, VQA wine shops Producer: Bottega Wine StudiosDistributors: Massey Wines & Spirits Ltd.
