Rosé Merlot - Pink Label Naramata 2020
This is from 1 acre on Matt's property planted in 2004 and currently undergoing organic conversion (the grapes used to go to Laughing Stock). Whole cluster pressed with 1.5 hours of skin contact. Fermentation in stainless steel and aging in old oak. Unfined and Unfiltered. DRY. Pretty apricot pink and slightly hazy. Big, inviting aromatics of savoury plum and watermelon. A medium bodied palate echoing the nose with a moreish character and fresh acidity. This has enough weight to handle some richer dishes. (We are very happy with this first vintage).
