Tasting Notes

A one of a kind, Amarone style rosé – hence the name of this flavourful wine. Aromas of ripe wild strawberries, melon, pineapple and citrus blossom. The palate is refreshing with a subtle creamy texture and flavours of fresh strawberry, orange, pineapple and guava leading to a dry finish.

Winemaking Notes

The 2017 vintage began cool and rainy however a warm snap in early Autumn allowed the fruit to fully ripen in time for harvest. A portion of the Chardonnay harvest was set aside to dry in the appassimento method which lends to the wines creamy texture. With fermentation and aging taking place in stainless steel, the Amarosé retains its fresh fruit aromas and flavours.

Food Pairings

Delightful on its own on the patio, or as a welcoming beverage for guests. Serve with summer salads, fresh oysters, mussels or salmon. Also robust enough to pair with pork tenderloin and BBQ foods such as chicken and turkey burgers.

Awards

GOLD Ontario Wine Awards 2018, 89 Points “It has a creamy feel on the palate and is richer than some rosés we’re seeing in Niagara…it has wonderful red berries and uplifting citrus accents on the finish.” – Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, April 13 2018
