Bartier Bros. Rosé

Bartier Bros. Rosé 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is an herbal edged rosé from Oliver and Summerland, and a dog's breakfast blend of cabernet franc, muscat, gewürztraminer, and chardonnay, whole cluster pressed and with five months on the lees. With blend in mind, you get the sense of competing flavours in this juicy rose, merging sweet, perfumed florals (roses, peach blossoms, apricot fuzz) with bright fruit (cherry, rhubarb) tightened with an herbal, balsamic, meaty element (think fennel salami). Cherry, orange, plum and blueberry lines the palate, and peppery spicing seasons the finish. Though somewhat disjointed, I can appreciate its bright juiciness (and moderate alcohol).Tasted: 01 June 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 17.99 winery direct or private wine stores Producer: Bartier Bros.Distributors: Winery Direct
