Amarosé 2017

$18.95

Tasting Notes
This wine is a beautiful pink colour. On the nose are layers of ripe wild strawberries, tropical fruits, melon and citrus blossom. The palate has great balance with ripe fruit notes — leading to a lengthy, dry finish. A complex and lovely Rosé that compliments a variety of dishes.

Winemaking
With both the Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay grapes being fermented and aged in stainless steel, the Amarosé retains its fresh fruit aromas and flavours. The appassimento portion (10%) comes from dried Chardonnay grapes, which lends to its a creamy texture.

Blend Notes
87% Pinot Noir,  13% Chardonnay

Wine and Food Pairing
Delightful on its own as a sipping wine! Serve with summer picnics/patio foods and salads, shellfish (oysters, shrimp, mussels), salmon and trout. Also robust enough to pair with pork tenderloin, and BBQ foods such as roast chicken and turkey burgers.

Awards and Accolades

GOLD – Ontario Wine Awards 2018

89 Points – “The winery calls this “a first-of-its-kind partial-appassimento rosé… It has a creamy feel on the palate and is richer than some rosés we’re seeing in Niagara but still, it has wonderful red berries and uplifting citrus accents on the finish.” Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, April 13, 2018
