Poplar Grove Lakeview Rosé 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Lakeview is an estate-grown (Naramata Bench) single-vineyard rosé mixing merlot and malbec (the latter using the saignée method that typically involves ‘bleeding’ off liquid from a juice tank for red wine in the early stages of the winemaking process). It opens with persistent aromas of wild strawberries and pink grapefruit overtones. In the glass, more ripe strawberry flavours carry the day before a dry finish kicks in. A solid pink we enjoyed with assorted late-afternoon patio bites.Tasted: 12 July 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 30.05 winery online/direct Producer: Poplar Grove WineryDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
