Lunessence Blanc de Noir Rosé 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaExpect an enticing pale pink colour that reviews a fresh, clean strawberry and raspberry scent. The style is fresh with silky textures aided by 13 percent of the fruit going through a barrel ferment in neutral oak. At only 12 percent alcohol, it is fresh and juicy and made from an unexpected source of interplanted merlot and syrah. At 6 grams residual sugar, it is just off-dry with sweet pink grapefruit, though pleasantly drier than previous editions. Ready-to-drink and fun as well, you can enjoy this with barbecue pork, or a spicy sushi salmon roll. What a difference the white label and screwcap make to the first impression of this rosé, and its ability to remain stable in the bottle.Tasted: 09 June 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 23.99 winery online/direct, selected private retailers, restaurants Producer: Lunessence Winery & VineyardDistributors: Winery Direct
