Haywire Gamay Noir Rosé Secrest Mountain Vineyard 2017

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWhen this note is published, Haywire will be the proud and worthy owner of the 36ha Secrest Mountain Vineyard, one they've been working with for years alongside previous owners, the Wise brothers. Its alluvial, gravel, calcareous soils have yielded some of the winery's most iconic wines. And again in 2017, it provided the grapes for this gamay rosé. A deeper cherry hue, this brisk and strawberry led wine carries salted stones, cherry, wild florals, textural lees on a medium bodied palate to a lingering salt finish. This shines when allowed to breathe some, rest and relax, as you should. Lovely purity and focus.Tasted: 01 June 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 22.90 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
