Stoneboat Vineyards 2011 Faux Pas Rosé - 87pts

Stoneboat Vineyards 2011 Faux Pas Rosé (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $18.90
Alcohol: 12.4%
Date Tasted: June 26th, 2012

Tasting Notes: To enhance the colour and concentration of the winery's Pinot Noir and Pinotage they use a standard practice of "bleeding" juice from the crush that sees only minimal contact with the red grape skins and the result is a lovely rosé with a light cranberry hue. A 50/50 Pinot Noir and Pinotage blend, this rosé boasts lively acid and fresh red fruit flavours with a tangy, refreshing texture and some lingering tannins on the finish. Drink 2012-2013.
