Boyd Brut Rose NV

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe rosé is a 97/3 mix of chardonnay/pinot noir where the chardonnay is grown on the Silhouette estate North Naramata Road property. The sparkle results from a full secondary fermentation in the bottle where the wine rested for 36 on its lees before it was hand-riddled and disgorged in June 2021. A three percent dosage of pinot noir from outside the Naramata Bench is responsible for the wine pouring an attractive pale pink colour. On the palate, the wine is dry and opens with somewhat tart notes. The plate mixes earthy strawberry notes with a lift of acidity that runs through the finish. It is definitely a fizz that would benefit from foods like grilled prawns or smoked salmon to take on the acidity.Tasted: 12 July 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.00 winery online/direct Producer: Silhouette Estate WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
