Tantalus Rosé 2022

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Tantalus Rosé blends equal parts of young vine pinot noir and pinot meunier, with quantity down due to the severe late 2021 frosts blitzing out pockets of their estate pinot noir. This was whole bunch pressed and fermented in stainless, where it remained on lees for 3 months. Pouring a pale peach hue, this concentrated yet graceful rosé is packed with golden apple, wild strawberry, mandarin, laced with buzzy pink grapefruit, lingering long on the finish. A beaut. Only 210 cases were made, so seek out while you can.Tasted: 19 June 2023Tasted by: Prices:
