CedarCreek Platinum Block 1 Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOnce again, the Platinum rosé, from the home estate's Block 1, is all elegance. Harvested in two picks, and partially native fermented in neutral oak, this took just one hour in contact with the pinot noir skins to transmit the lovely, gentle pink hue. Three months on the lees added a fine cushion of lees to the medium-bodied palate, elongating this in the mouth to a lingering, moreish finish. Wild strawberries, spice, cherry blossoms and a refreshing tangerine astringency keeps things fresh and buoyant, while a vein of savoury stones grounds this.
