SANDHILL ESTATE VINEYARD & ROCKY RIDGE VINEYARD
Gamay Noir (81%), Merlot (13%) and Sangiovese (6%)
A delicate pink grapefruit in colour. This Rosé begins with a summer pretty aroma of wild strawberry, crab apple, white peach and melon. At first taste, expect a refreshing and juicy wine that is just off-dry with fruity flavours of tangy red berries, red apple and Rainier cherry, then finishing dry, with notes of pomegranate, red berry, white currant, pink grapefruit and a touch of earthiness.
Excellent with tapas; antipasto plates; feta bruschetta; whole grain summer salads; buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad; Greek salad; grilled salmon; crab cakes; grilled calamari; pissaladiere; Margherita pizza; grilled pork tenderloin; feta cheese; Tourtiere with tangy chili sauce.
The mid and southern Okanagan, and Similkameen Valleys, experienced an early start to the growing season with warm, dry conditions which persisted until August. The month of August and early September experienced smoke covered valleys from local wild fires which slowed the ripening process, allowing for an extended period for ripening and development of flavours. During late September conditions improved providing an excellent harvest period for early ripening varietals. An early October frost caused some issues with late ripening varietals, but overall the 2019 vintage saw a near normal to good growing season.
