Baillie-Grohman Estate Winery 2009 Blanc-de-Noir Rosé (Creston Valley) BC

Availability: Direct from winery here.
Cost: $19.99
Alcohol: 13.7%
Production: 100 cases
Date Tasted: November 26th, 2010

Tasting Notes: Made in the traditional "Saignée" method ("bleeding" the colour from the skins) from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. Good colour with an enchanting nose of strawberry and rose petal aromas and a sweet, full-bodied palate full of fruity flavours and a touch of minerality. The 18 g/l of residual sugar may over-power most foods except the spiciest dishes but the wine will make it an excellent pairing for a hot deck next summer. Enjoy this wine in its youth. Drink 2010-2012.
