Unsworth Vineyards Sunnydale Vineyard Rosé 2020

Saanich Peninsula, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaSaanich's Sunnydale Vineyard has been supplying Unsworth with Pinot Noir grapes since their first vintage. This is the first single vineyard rosé from that site, located on the silt slopes of Mount Newton. This is own-rooted clone 164 pinot noir, destemmed and fermented in neutral barrique before aging in stainless on lees for 4 months. Pouring a pale white peach hue, this is bone dry and tart with subtle cranberry, rainier cherry, and prickly pear spread across a creamy palate. The finish rings with a marine salinity and tart cranberry snap. This finishes a touch somewhat disjointed at this youthful stage, but it's a cuvee that I'm looking forward to tracking.Tasted: 12 July 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.65 winery direct Producer: Unsworth Vineyards ULCDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
