Culmina Family Estate Saignée Rosé 2019

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis rosé embodies style, from embossed label, to Vino-loc glass T-top, to the pale orange/peach hue, through to the Culmina name and brand. 2019 Saignée blends malbec, merlot, cabernet franc, and cabernet sauvignon from the Golden Mile Bench estate's Arise Vineyard. After a few hours' skin contact, this fermented and aged in stainless. Cool, slick strawberries, raspberries, white peach and Rainier cherries glide along the super peppery palate to a lengthy finish. There's ample glycerin and a wave of alcohol (14%) to make this extra stylish, for those looking for style like this.Tasted: 08 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 24.00 winery online, select private retailers Producer: Culmina Family Estate WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
