In the cellar
Upon arrival at the crush pad, grapes were rigorously hand sorted. Following traditional vingris methodology, a short skin maceration gave this rosé its faint pink coloration and subtle Pinot perfume. Fermentation and six months aging took place in old French oak barrels.
Production: 100 cases
In the glass
A seductively subtle nose with delicate strawberry fruit and refreshing mint. On the palate, tell-tale Nova Scotian brightness combines with texture indicative of extended lees aging. Finishes austere with crushed-rock and citrus rind. Pairs beautifully with oysters, Herbes de Provence, snow crab, roasted poultry dishes.
