Seven Directions Fruitvale Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Franc Rosé 2017

West Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe elegance on the palate of the Seven Directions rosés is highly appealing. This is not an afterthought label, but one of two single vineyard offerings celebrating pink wines and honouring the Provencal style. This is all cabernet franc from Osoyoos' Fruitvale Ridge Vineyard, now nine years old. The predominantly rocky shale site has yielded a delicate strawberry, watermelon, rhubarb nose that spills across the palate with a twist of orange rind. Delicious and terrific value.Tasted: 01 June 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Bottega Wine StudiosDistributors: Massey Wines & Spirits Ltd.
