Seven Directions Tractor and Vines Vineyard Pinot Noir Rosé 2019

West Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSeven Directions is a virtual winery owned and operated by Kristine Witkowski and Daniel Bontorin. Their blended family of five kids, plus the parents, are the folks heading in Seven Directions. This wine is only heading in one direction, up to the stars. Provençal inspired, this rosé is a wonderful model for the Okanagan to emulate. Both wines, Fruitvale Ridge, and Tractor and Vines, are single vineyard designates and farmed from bud break to be a rosé. Tractor and Vines is made with pinot noir and is essentially dry at 3.9 grams of RS per litre The big citrus highlights the firm red fruit base that comes dusted in Okanagan sagebrush. Wow; such a delight that would confuse the most seasoned European rosé drinkers. Try this with white meats or a favourite fresh cheese. Crushed, cold-soaked on the skins for a mere 2 hours, gently pressed, fermentation took place in 75% stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and aroma, as well as 25% in neutral French oak barrels for added creaminess and texture. Sourced from a 1.1 acre, single vineyard, the grapes for this Pinot Noir rosé were sustainably farmed.Tasted: 16 May 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.99 winery direct, VQA wine shops Producer: Bottega Wine StudiosDistributors: Massey Wines & Spirits Ltd.
