|The 2012 Rosé is made entirely with Gamay Noir grapes grown at Three Wolves Vineyard on the Mount Boucherie Bench. Harvested in mid October, the grapes were crushed into stainless tanks and soaked for 24 hours on skins allowing the clear juice to draw flavour and colour before pressing and setting. After racking, the juice was warmed and inoculated with vigorous yeast strains and fermented cold to enhance the unique varietal characteristics. This wine is meant to be consumed early while the flavours are crisp and vibrant. Source: Winery|
