Meyer Rosé

Meyer Rosé 2019

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Pinot Noir Rosé comes from the estate McLean Creek Road vineyard in Okanagan Falls, as well as from vineyards in East Kelowna, Kaleden, and Naramata. This saignée pink had 12-24 hours with skins, was partial native fermented and then into a 50/50 split of barrels and stainless for aging 6 months on lees. That lees has certainly built up a plump cushion on the medium bodied palate, with fleshy cherry, raspberry, and red currants spiced with an herbal desert scrub mix. Quite Provençal in polish and form, with a bit more overt and inherent Okanagan fruit, this would suit a similarly stylish patio lunch or dinner this summer.Tasted: 29 May 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.00 winery direct Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
