This wine is as beautiful to drink as it is to look at. The grapes, grown specifically with this wine in mind, are truly the star of the show here. Syrah lends captivating aromatics and structure to this rosé each year. It seems absolutely crazy to me that more Okanagan wineries aren’t taking advantage of the grape’s delicate side in this way. In the cellar, we intervene as minimally as possible, and by doing so, we're able to achieve a really harmonious and varietally-expressive rosé.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of wild strawberries and cream jump out of the glass, and are joined by a burst of ripe watermelon, grapefruit, and white pepper. The palate is refreshingly dry and satisfyingly savoury. Delicate in colour, perhaps, but not without substance; this rosé is mouth-filling and textural, with juicy acidity and a gentle tannin structure that bring both balance and focus to the wine.
Vineyard Notes
Amalia Vineyard, Osoyoos West Bench (Sandy loam) - Syrah
Production Notes
Our dedicated rosé blocks were hand-harvested, sorted, destemmed and pressed immediately; minimizing maceration time as much as possible. The pale juice was transferred gently into a stainless steel tank, where it was cold settled for 48 hours, and then racked, warmed and inoculated with a selected yeast strain. The ferment was kept cool (under 13C) in order to maximize aromatic expression, and was racked and chilled upon completion. The wine was then stabilized, filtered and bottled.
