Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

With a nod to dwindling summer days, I am celebrating this Labour Day on the patio with Baillie Grohman’s 2016 Blanc de Noirs Rosé. This VQA wine is made from 100 per cent sustainably-farmed Pinot Noir grapes. Wine grapes are from the winery’s estate vineyards in Creston and were hand-harvested, destemmed and crushed, spending three and a-half days in cold skin contact to retain maximum freshness and fruit flavours. The PN juice was then gently pressed off the skins and fermented in cool, temperature-controlled tanks. On the nose, pronounced sweet-tart ripe red berries, particularly raspberry, can be found. Although the wine seems drier than it is on the palate, there is 22 grams/litre residual sugar. This rosé has medium weight mid-palate with more raspberry and fresh watermelon flavours met with a vibrant, zesty acidity. So refreshing, structured and balanced, a patio-perfect farewell-to-summer rosé. As an aside, the 2014 vintage of this wine won Best Rosé at the 2015 Best of Varietal Awards at the Okanagan Wine Festival.
