Lock and Worth Cabernet Franc Rosé 2016

CanadaPale but potent, light but intense, dry but lively: This is what I want to drink in pink. Copiously. From 1.5 acres of 2008-planted cabernet franc on the sandy Naramata Bench, this was whole cluster pressed (three hours of skin contact) before resting in neutral French oak for six months. A slight cloudiness attests to the low-intervention winemaking: this was bottled without fining or filtration. Crisp and tight, streaked with mandarin peel and brightened with a juicy quell of acidity, this is all wild strawberries, salted plum, herbal salts and broken stones. Savoury, lithe and finessed, at an impressive 11.6 percent, this is the definition of serious and seriously smashable.
