Stag's Hollow Syrah Rosé

Stag's Hollow Syrah Rosé 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe syrah rosé is made in two lots. The first portion comes off a rosé dedicated block in Amalia Vineyard. It is destemmed and lightly crushed with a mere 30 minutes on the skins. It’s cold settled for 72 hours before being racked into another stainless steel tank to ferment. Part two is made using the saignée method, bleeding a small amount coming off an 8-hour cold soak of syrah/viognier, settled another 42 hours before it's racked and fermented. The final mix of 92/8 syrah/viognier was blended post ferment. Look for a soft, round style with more intense wild berry flavours, creamy textures and a richness that suggests just a hint of tannin. Think Tavel meets Provencal. Best paired with Meditteranean dishes.Tasted: 22 March 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 18.00 winery direct and private wine shops Producer: Stag's Hollow Winery and VineyardDistributors: Winery Direct
