Clos du Soleil Rosé 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA rare malbec rosé, sourced from La Côte Vineyard on the Upper Bench of the Similkameen Valley, opens with a slightly reductive, garlic lees nose. The colour is pale thanks to a four-hour cold soak under dry ice and a gentle pressing. The nose is almost sauvignon-like with a touch of earthy armpit and tart red fruits. Light and crisp on the palate with more earthy tart fruit calling for richer, fatter dishes. Ready to drink. Think barbecued beef ribs or a pulled pork sandwich.Tasted: 21 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 22.90 winery online Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
