Stag's Hollow Blanc de Noirs 2018

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Blanc de Noirs is a new rosé from Stag’s Hollow, mixing 76 percent ritter clone pinot noir with 24 percent gamay cold settled for 72 hours. Two-thirds of the wine is fermented in two new 500L French oak puncheons and one third went to stainless steel. The colour is pale, pale pink, and the nose a lovely mix of peach and strawberries, but it’s the creamy, leesy texture that gives this wine its real interest. Near bone dry, the mouthwatering pink has terrific energy and mouthfeel. I agree with the winery’s suggested food matches of white pizzas, pork tacos and peppery arugula salads.Tasted: 22 March 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.00 winery direct and private wine shops AB 26.00 private wine shops Producer: Stag's Hollow Winery and VineyardDistributors: Winery Direct
