Hillside Rosé Below the Road 2022

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis bright pink hued rosé is crafted from free-run merlot, viognier, cabernet sauvignon, and cabernet franc. It partially (44%) aged in previously filled French barrels and spent 4 months on the lees. The nose unfolds with floral accompanied by raspberry and hints of watermelon, as well as the delicate presence of spices. On the palate, there’s a nice mix of flavours, revealing both richness and structure. Elevated acidity, tightly woven, lends vibrancy to the savoury finish.Tasted: 09 August 2023Tasted by: HJ ChaPrices:
