I always associate Rosé with sunshine.
And this past Easter long-weekend, the sun, which has been elusive for months, shone.
And so I eagerly reached for a pale gem from Lock & Worth Winery that has been lingering in my refrigerator, waiting patiently for such a day.
This graceful wine comes from the sandy terrior of the Naramata Bench in British Columbia Canada, and is distinctive because it is made solely from Cabernet Franc grapes.
… bone dry, crisp and fresh. This year the Rosé saw bottled without fining or filtration. It is slightly cloudy. Strawberries, red plum, red apple skin. Dry but fresh and bright
~ Winemakers Notes, 2016 Cabernet Franc Rosé
Savoury, salty and streamline, this dry rosé is for adventurous sippers, and best when it warms up in the glass.
~ Treve Ring, Gismondi On Wine
Alas, the sunshine did not last.
But then again, neither did this delightful wine.
