Road 13 Rosé 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinemaker Barclay Robinson has worked some magic here, refreshing this label and taking it down the fresher, lighter, brighter road to success. 2021 is a 54/46 mix of estate pinot noir and gamay grown for rosé production on the Golden Mile Bench. Exuberant aromas of rose petals and wild strawberries preview similar flavours on the palate in a much more refreshing style this year. Pairing is easy: clam linguini, summer chicken dishes, grilled mushrooms, and asparagus pasta. High level smoke from area wildfires blocked the sunlight allowing Barclay to hang the fruit longer, improving intensity without affecting the wine.Tasted: 28 May 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 23.99 winery direct, VQA wine shops Producer: Road 13Distributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
