Winemaking Notes

The 2016 Grower’s Blend Rosé is a Pinot Noir- based blend with Cabernet Franc, Gamay Noir and Pinot Gris. To impart structure and colour, it was made using a process called “saignée” though which we combine the free-run juice of select single-vineyard red grapes before they are pressed. The result is a beautiful pale pink and aromatic Rose that is bursting with aromas of cherry blossom, ripe strawberry and watermelon alongside an almost confectionary-like sweetness. The palate is ripe with sweet strawberries and pineapple with a well-rounded mouth-feel. This is a very quaffable wine indeed.

Growing Conditions

Sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest.
