Lock and Worth Cabernet Franc Rosé grey label

Lock and Worth Cabernet Franc Rosé grey label 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis grey label Cab Franc Rosé sources fruit from a small sandy Naramata vineyard planted at the original Poplar Grove property in 1995. There was also a bin of cab franc from Oliver tipped into this year's rosé, to make the most of a lovely looking extra bin of fruit needing a home. This was whole cluster pressed and into neutral French oak for 6 months prior to bottling without fining or filtration. Pouring slightly hazy, this carries bergamot, pear, wild strawberries, and a flush of mineral salts along a slender palate, lined with fine herbal lees, and finishing with a tangerine snap. Striking, serious, smashable, this is the pink for folks like me to drink all summer and beyond.Tasted: 20 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.00 winery direct Producer: Lock & WorthDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
