Township 7 Seven Stars Equinox Brut Rosé 2015

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinemaker Mary McDermott is bringing back the Township 7 bubble program with the release of three traditional méthod labels: Polaris, Equinox, and Eclipse. McDermott has made a bunch of fizz at Trius Winery in Ontario, so I am expecting good things. Seven Stars Equinox is sourced from Sperling Vineyards in Kelowna, and from the first pour, this is one intriguing rosé sparkler. The colour is perfectly hued along the light pink/orange vein. The nose is even better — complex, dry, earthy, and yeasty, reflecting 25 months bottle ageing. The attack is tight, the bubble bead firm and the flavours deliciously contained in its far north, citrus, red-berry style. It will work with a variety of foods.Tasted: 19 March 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 48.97 wine club exclusive Producer: Township 7 Vineyards and WineriesDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
