Pétales d'Osoyoos 2019

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe youngest vines of the 32-hectare Osoyoos Larose estate are the base for the Pétales label, along with barrels dropped from the Grand Vin. It is a delicious, juicy red blend with all five Bordeaux varieties. The blocks are kept separate, hand sorted, destemmed, and crushed at the winery. The fermentation is done in stainless steel cone-shaped tanks. Then, over 12 months, each variety is aged separately in two and three-year-old French oak barrels. The density and roundness of the tannins and textures make this wine so exciting for the price. So perfectly balanced, this is one to buy and hold too. Perhaps the best and most complex Pétales yet.
