A lovely BC rose that's a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. So fragrant and floral with fleeting notes of small field strawberries. Dry and refreshing. Pair with planked salmon.

Reviews and Ratings

The colour of an amber pink sunset, this wine’s aromatics burst out of the glass with sunwarmed
strawberries, watermelon Jolly Rancher, white rose and hints of cinnamon. The
palate is all lush berry and cherry tones with juicy ripe citrus flesh and caramelized pink
grapefruit. The mouthfeel is creamy and textural with lively acidity to pull the wine through to
a long delicious finish – enjoyed on its own or paired up with a patio and late summer nights!
This year’s release is a 60/40 blend of fruit picked from our Pinot Meunier block, planted in
1985, and young plantings of Pinot Noir. Its brilliant colour is a result of the juice being left on
skins for 7 days. By fermenting to near dry, the vibrancy of the fruit character shines through

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
