Rust Wine Co. Pinot Noir Merlot Rosé 2018

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Rust Rosé is made using the saignée method from merlot grown in the Similkameen Valley. It was wild fermented spending 18 hours on skins. The colour is Provençal pink, the nose a mix of lemon, orange zest, and sweet watermelon with just a touch of five-spice. There’s some residual sugar here, so it's best to chill this down, and even better, serve it with spicy dishes and give the sugar a chance to balance the dish. The folks at Rust are donating five dollars to the BC Hospitality Fund for every magnum sold. Consumers wanting to support the cause should look for this label in a restaurant.
