Culmina Family Estate Saignée Rosé 2020

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Arise Bench, a Culmina Golden Mile Bench estate vineyard, the 2020 Saignée blends cabernet franc, syrah, malbec, cabernet sauvignon, and merlot. The fermentation is done in stainless steel, the colour is Provence cool, but the style is fuller, as evidenced by the blend. At 14 percent alcohol, backed up by the glossy, silky textures, it is packed full of ripe strawberries and fully ripe watermelon, citrus, and spice. It is meant to be served with richer summer dishes and should please those looking for a mouthfull of rosé.Tasted: 06 June 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.00 winery online, select private retailers Producer: Culmina Family Estate WineryDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
