Blue Grouse Quill Rosé 2017

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Quill Rosé is a blend of 68/32 gamay/pinot noir from the Cowichan. Medium pale pink, with a slick of lees layering the palate. Wild strawberries, fresh raspberries is lined with orange and ringed with citrus pith. This has a creamy mid palate, and friendly approachability. I'm missing the zippy acidity of last year, but this easy pink will have many fans, rightfully so.Tasted: 01 June 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
