Rust Wine Co. Cabernet Sauvignon South Rock Vineyard Rosé 2019

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Rust Rosé is made using the saignée method, bleeding juice from tank, and in this case, from cabernet sauvignon. Generally, you get a slightly richer flavour and deeper pink colour when you use the saignée method, and it is the story here. The fruit is from the Golden Mile Bench where a wild ferment reveals a mix of flavours led by lemon, orange peel, and a spicy touch of watermelon. The finish is smooth with some residual sugar helping to balance out the rust-ic nature of this pink. Best with spicy appetizers. Serve well chilled for best results.Tasted: 10 April 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 22.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Rust Wine Co.Distributors: Winery Direct
