LaStella 2015 LaStellina Rosato (Osoyoos) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: VQA stores and direct from the winery here
Cost: $19.99 + taxes
Production: 715 cases
Date Tasted: April 16th, 2016
Tasting Notes: Produced in the saignée method which "bleeds" juice from newly crushed red grapes imparting a pale strawberry colour and just a touch of tannin texture, the LaStellina is a blend of 62.6% Cabernet Franc, 29.9% Merlot and 7.6% Sangiovese with a fruity, joyful flavour profile of strawberry, rhubarb, cherry and mouth-watering tropical fruit. The balance between the sweet fruit and the acidic elements leans towards off-dry, but not fully. Drink now.
