Gold Hill Cabernet Franc Rosé 2020

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis cabernet franc rosé opens with a medium peach/orange colour from 18 hours of skin contact. The nose is ripe with a dusting of the desert sage and grass mixed into strawberries. The palate is creamy and dense, with some of that skin contact pushing into the strawberry and tangerine, flecked with baking spices. The addition of some residual sugar tends to smooth it all out and will add appeal for most. Best with spicy food this year, but why not lean this out a bit and give a bit more finesse in the future?Tasted: 28 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 22.99 wine club member exclusive Producer: Gold Hill WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
