Culmina Family Estate Saignée Rosé 2019

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaCulmina's 2019 Saignée shows a really proper rosé nose of joyful red fruit and botanicals in a perfect aroma ratio. Big and expansive in the mouth with juicy cherries, peppered strawberry, and tart red apple, and perfect note of herbal pungency. Add in the richness of a creamy/glossy texture, 14% abv, and you've got a powerful rosé with body, heft, and staying power. Put its mouthwatering acidity and flavourful super-dry finish to work with crab cakes, grilled pork chops, or simple saucisson sec and crusty baguette. Very well made rosé from malbec, merlot, cabernet franc, and cabernet sauvignon that is ridiculously appealing and moreish.Tasted: 15 June 2020Tasted by: Prices:
