Mayhem Rosé 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMayhem Wines is a fun collab between two established wine siblings: Terry Meyer Stone of Anarchist Mountain Vineyards, and her brother JAK Meyer of Meyer Family Vineyards. This merlot comes from their estate Anarchist Mountain Vineyard, was foot trodden, and chilled for 24 hours on skins before being pressed off for a long, cool ferment, 23% native in older barrel with full MLF, and the remainder in stainless with no MLF. They were blended after 6 months into tank where they came together before bottling. Fantastic snappy packaging here reflects what's in the bottle, with a shiny peach / blush hue leading to sage-scented wild cherries, plums, and red currants. Acidity is juicy and brisk, and there's a light dusting of peppery spice for interest. Fun, joyous, easy, and one to crack this summer.Tasted: 29 May 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.13 winery online, select private retailers Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
