Lock and Worth Cabernet Franc Rosé White Label 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTwo Cabernet Franc Rosés were made in 2018, though unless you're visiting the winery or come across the wine in one of the export markets (rare sighting), you'll have this white label version, sourced from the same Naramata north bench site, planted under Nichol, as all the previous versions. Planted in 2008, this low-intervention, slight, orange-hued rosé was destemmed, had three hours skin contact before ferment and time in stainless. It was bottled with minimal amounts of sulphur, unfined and unfiltered, evident by the sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Reassuringly delicious as ever, bone dry and brisk, with with salted quince, apricot fuzz, meadow herbs, light white honey coating the core, and a bitter bergamot tea rinse on the finish. Bright and shining on the slender palate to a salted finish, all encouraging another glass or few.Tasted: 28 March 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.00 winery direct Producer: Lock & WorthDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
