FLAVOUR PROFILE
A summer rose petal pink colour. This Rosé begins with lovely notes of strawberry, Rainier cherry, watermelon, pomegranate, raspberry, and a touch of earth. At first taste, expect a refreshing and juicy wine with fruity flavours of red berry and pink grapefruit, then finishing dry, with notes of tangy red berry, pink grapefruit and cranberry.

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.

GROWING CONDITIONS
The months of May and June experienced cool, wet conditions which slowed growth, disrupting some spring bud development thereby reducing crop load in the vineyards. Summer began with a bang and from early July through August there was consistent sunshine, high heat units and timely rains.  A very warm September provided the perfect conditions for any lagging maturity resulting from the slow spring start. The great weather continued into October, extending hang time for some varietals that needed that extra push. Overall, it was a great growing season with healthy canopies, the ability for the vines to respond to the weather, and fewer periods of shut down due to extreme heat, therefore allowing grape maturity to continue on an even and steady rate with optimum conditions. [The Osoyoos region saw 1616 GDD].
