Culmina Family Estate Saignée Rosé 2017

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis stylish rosé blends juice from the winery's best Bordeaux blocks, marrying 56 percent merlot, 19 cabernet sauvignon, 14 percent malbec, and 11 percent cabernet franc 2017, all from Arise Bench. After two-six hours skin contact, Saignée was fermented and matured in stainless steel tanks and casks. Lovely silken roses, strawberries, on a glycerol slicked palate, one with a pretty lift of perfumed fruit but still weighted down by alcohol and sugar. Luxury Provençal in styling.Tasted: 16 January 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 24.00 winery direct Producer: Culmina Family Estate WineryDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
