Le Vieux Pin 2014 Vaila (Okanagan Valley) BC
Availability: VQA stores and direct from the winery here
Cost: $21.90 ($24.90 including taxes)
Production: 768 cases
Date Tasted: May 27th, 2015
Tasting Notes: A lovely, aromatic and zesty rosé produced from a blend of 100% Pinot Noir grapes sourced from Okangan Falls and Westbank vineyards that were purpose-grown for this label (not created as a by-product of "bleeding" pressed grapes destined for a red wine to increase that wine's concentration.)
The Vaila opens with an exotic mix of kiwi, rhubarb, cranberry, raspberry seed and alpine strawberry aromas followed by a vibrant, mouth watering palate with similar flavours, added citrus and mineral notes and a touch of body that lasts through the long finish. Drink now (it's a rosé).
