Roche Rosé 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their Naramata home vineyard, this rosé is a blend of organically farmed, 92% Zweigelt and 8% Schonberger, from 20 year old ungrafted vines. This had only 45 minutes of skin contact, and was native fermented. Crunchy and bright, with pomegranate, cranberry, and red currant leading, and zesty green apple acidity driving this along the zippy palate. There's a base of lees offsetting the fresh acidity and fruit, finishing with a lingering salinity. Quite delicious.Tasted: 20 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.90 winery online/direct Producer: Roche WinesDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
