Critic's Rating 89 pts
Our 2023 Rosé is a unique blend of Pinot Noir and Barbera creating a wine that is complex, dry & crisp. It is the perfect summer sipper to enjoy with friends, at the lake, at the cottage, or on your favourite patio.

IN THE GLASS: strawberry, cranberry, rhubarb, tomato leaf; complex, dry & crisp.

VINEYARD NOTES: The grapes for this wine came from the Tightrope Estate vineyards in Naramata and vineyards on the Naramata Bench; they were hand-picked selectively over 3 weeks.

WINEMAKER NOTES: Our Rosé is made from Pinot Noir and Barbera, which gives it complexity, elevates the fruit, and provides a touch of spiciness. The Pinot Noir was whole-cluster pressed, crushed, and left on skins to cold soak for 1-2 days before being pressed.  After the juice had settled it was cool-fermented in stainless steel at 14°C.  It took 30 days to complete. The wine was then blended with just the right amount of Barbera. There was minimal intervention throughout the whole process.

Food Pairing Notes: A lake & good friends; grilled salmon; beef souvlaki

Residual Sugar: 1.33 g/L

Critic's Rating

Tightrope opens with an intriguing candied lemon and strawberry nose. The 96/4 blend of pinot noir and barbera are all Naramata, handpicked over a three week window. The wine is mostly dry on the palate, with just a small bump of residual sugar to smooth out the edges. It's ready to drink, and you can serve it solo well chilled. It would also be fun with beef tacos or a salmon pizza.
