Covert Farms Rosé 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's rosé comes off their organic estate's Coyote Block vineyard, and blends Merlot 75%, Cabernet Franc 15%, Syrah 10%, with 12 hours cold soaked on skins for the deep peach hue, prior to a coferment in stainless, where it remained for 4 months on lees. Full in body and mouthfeel, with a glycerol base bedding red currant, red apple, cherry, and baked raspberry. There's a dusting of baking spices woven throughout, finishing briefly with an orange twist. A simple, somewhat old school style, best taken with heartier grilled dishes this summer.Tasted: 25 May 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.49 winery online, select private retailers Producer: Covert Farms Family EstateDistributors: BCWineshop
