Availability: Direct from winery here and VQA stores
Production: 1078 cases
Date Tasted: July 17th, 2012
Tasting Notes: Wild raspberry, rhubarb, Bosc pear, light brioche and floral aromas make for a lovely nose on this salmon-meets-brick coloured Gamay Noir rosé from Summerland. The mostly dry, nicely textured palate follows with a kick of tart, watery red fruit and refreshing acidity that balances the residual sugar admirably. The finish is long with lingering mild tannins and mouth-watering lemon/lime rind flavours.
Pair with a raspberry cream sauce covered salmon fillet or your favourite hot deck. Drink now-2013.
