Fort Berens Rosé 2021

Lillooet, British Columbia, CanadaFrom entirely Lillooet fruit, this rosé is primarily pinot noir, with splashes of merlot and cabernet franc, the latter two from their new Red Rock vineyard, planted 2018. The destemmed grapes had 12 hours skin contact time, resulting in the potently peach hue. The wine was long in cold in stainless. Wild strawberry, lush peach, mandarin fill a juicy palate, with an orange citrus note that spices the finish, and a wee bump of RS to counter. A friendly, easy rosé to crack into this summer.Tasted: 27 July 2022Tasted by: Prices:
