Lock and Worth Cabernet Franc Rosé grey label 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTwo Cabernet Franc Rosés were made in 2018, though you'll only find this grey label one if you're visiting the winery or come across the wine in one of the export markets (rare sighting). This was also planted in Naramata in 1995 on the original Poplar Grove property, middle bench. This low-intervention, deeper orange-hued rosé was destemmed, had three hours skin contact before ferment and time in stainless. It was bottled with minimal sulphur, unfined and unfiltered, evident by the sediment in the bottom of the bottle. With a lime cordial centre, this round and juicy rosé is more potent and herbaceous than its white label sibling. Bergamot, yellow apple, pear rule this youthful wine, one still slender and finishing with a salt snap. You can consider this the more extraverted, exuberant Naramata twin.Tasted: 28 March 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.00 winery direct Producer: Lock & WorthDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
