LaStella Lastellina Rosato

LaStella Lastellina Rosato 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is a blend of 66 percent cabernet franc, 30 percent merlot, and 4 percent sangiovese sourced from vineyards throughout the South Okanagan. The wine was made using a combination of saignée and direct press methods. Medium salmon in colour, it has quite a savoury nose with herbs, spice, and wild strawberry. Although the winery describes this as off-dry, it is perceptibly dry - and only 3 g/L residual sugar. At only 12.6 percent alcohol, it is a very drinkable style, which also provides a lot of interest.
