Seven Directions Tractor and Vines Vineyard Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

West Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTractors and Vines is an 11-year-old, one-acre, lake-level, pinot noir vineyard in Summerland with an east-west exposition. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and neutral French barrels; it is a 75/25 split that preserves freshness and adds texture and creaminess to this melt in your mouth rosé. Delicately wild this is a prime example of what can be done when you are focused on rosé from start to finish. Stony, mineral, elegant and vaguely fruity this is the real thing. Seven Directions Wine is a virtual winery owned and operated by Kristine Witkowski. The wines are made by the highly passionate consulting winemaker Daniel Bontorin of Bottega Wine Studio. Seven Directions is making wines inspired by the Provencal model. All wines are single vineyard designates, and they are farmed from bud break to the harvest to end up as rosé.Tasted: 18 April 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.99 winery direct, VQA wine shops Producer: Bottega Wine StudiosDistributors: Winery Direct
