Clos du Soleil Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé

Clos du Soleil Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe cabernet sauvignon is grown specifically for this wine, on a steep southern-facing slope of Clos du Soleil’s La Côte Vineyard, on the Upper Bench of the Similkameen Valley. The nose is delicate and aromatic, with notes of red cherries and pomegranate. The attack is lively with juicy raspberry, cherries, and rhubarb, streaked with a bit of salty, mineral, orange zest. The fruit is destemmed, lightly crushed, and soaked under dry ice for 6 hours, followed by gentle pressing, and a long, slow, cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged on lees until bottling. Almost any food works here, including salmon, chicken, soft cheeses, cheesy popcorn, or a sunny patio. Well done.Tasted: 29 June 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.90 winery online Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
