Curated Wine Box – Rose
Rust Rosé 2019 $20.99
This year our Rose is from the first harvest of our Cabernet Sauvignon planted in 2017. A berry forward, dry style of Rose that is ideal with summer salads or light tapas.
Clos du Soleil Rosé 2019 $21.99
A classic wine from Clos du Soleil, this full-bodied and complex rosé, produced from 100% Malbec offers layers of ripe fruit flavours. The delightful strawberry hues of this wine announce the rich aromatic profile of ripe, juicy strawberries, raspberries and rhubarb pie. The palate explodes with the same flavours: wild strawberry, raspberry jam, and red rhubarb, reinforced by crisp acidity and an underlying minerality. The finish is long and full, yet refreshing.
An extraordinarily flexible food wine, it pairs equally well with charcuterie, or roast pork, with fruit salad or with a bacon quiche. Or perhaps the best way of all to enjoy it: a glass all by itself!
Lunessence Blanc de Noir Rosé 2019 $24.99
Light and refreshing rose made with merlot and syrah. Flavors of strawberries with a hint of rhubarb. On the finish nice citrus notes with pleasant and crisp acidity.
La Stella Lastellina Rosé 2018 $26.99
Herbal raspberry, cool cherry glides along a silken strawberry palate in this off-dry pink. The finish is astringent and snappy, welcoming food, and echoing with dried sage. A mix of 62 percent cabernet franc, 32 percent merlot, and six percent sangiovese from North Oliver, Naramata Bench, and Osoyoos Lake district spent four months on the lees in stainless. The gentle bump of RS stands out here, a bit offset against fuzzy sides and herbal seasoning. Best with grilled salmon or veggie burgers.
Silkscarf Saignée R0sé 2019 $26.99
In this Saignée method wine, the 12 hour skin contact created a beautifully saturated pink tone. Made from Shiraz and Pinot Noir grapes, this wine presents a highly aromatic nose of cherry, sweet almond, lilac and raspberry. On the palate, sweetness and a zesty acidity are intertwined with flavours of rhubarb, raspberry, spartan apple and maraschino cherries. Rich texture and a good intensity of flavours all lead to a long finish.
