CedarCreek Platinum Block 1 Pinot Noir Rosé 2017

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIn 2017 the winery decided to put all its home estate Block 1 pinot noir into this rosé, harvested over two tries in September. Ten percent saw time in neutral oak to plump-up the texture while the rest remained tight in stainless. This is a graceful, pale pink hue, with wild strawberries and cream, perfumed raspberries and pink grapefruit rimmed with fine, dusty, sage on the finish. The palate is silky and cushioned with the cream and a touch RS, though the finish is fine rasped pink peppercorns, stony salty and mineral dry. This is an elegant, polished and serious rosé, befitting the Platinum name and tier. We would love to see the acidity pulled taut to take this next level.
