Willakenzie Estate Rosé 2018

Willamette Valley, Oregon, United StatesSunset pinky orange, this Willamette Valley rosé looks very pretty in the glass, and smells just as attractive, with wild berries, currant leaf, and overt earthiness. Bone dry, juicy strawberry flavours layer a very creamy palate, which is a delightful aspect of this textured, slightly salty rosé. Savoury and slimmed by cleansing, lemony high acidity, it's a natural with fatty food like pork belly or smoked salmon, but also complete enough to gulp just a chilled glass. Mostly pinot noir, there is a dash of meunier and pinot blanc to keep things lively. No reason to not drink this purposeful rosé well into the cold weather.Tasted: 15 September 2019Tasted by: DJ KearneyPrices: BC 32.99 private wine stores Producer: Willakenzie EstateDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
