Red Rooster Rosé 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaRed Rooster has been retooling its wines under winemaker Eliane Vickers for the last year or so, and the latest results are looking highly promising. The former Blasted Church winemaker has been working with Ross Wise, chief winemaker at Black Hills and area lead for the Peller group of wineries in BC. The nose of this pale pink, Provence-like rosé is very appealing, with subtle strawberry, watermelon aromas that spill across the palate. It is entirely malbec from Osoyoos, gently foot stomped and lightly pressed, and at 1.7 grams of sugar, you should consider it dry. Well done, and a great new start at Red Rooster. Fine value here.Tasted: 27 June 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.00 winery direct, private wine shops AB 18.00 Producer: Red Rooster WineryDistributors: Andrew Peller Import Agency
