River Stone Malbec Rosé 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis malbec rosé was sourced the South Okanagan, including the winery's estate River Rock vineyard. The destemmed fruit saw 60 percent left whole berry, with the rest gently crushed before a cold soak for 1-2 days prior to pressing. The juice undergoes fermentation in stainless, where it ages further for three months on fine lees. Punchy and bold, as in previous years, with blackberry, tayberry, cherry fruit. This had some sweetness added back, to leave it off-dry at the finish, a move I think is unnecessary. Pour with burgers or pork ribs.Tasted: 04 August 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.90 winery direct, VQA stores, private liquor stores Producer: River Stone Estate WineryDistributors: Lifford Wine and Spirits
