Spring Wine

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

Savoury, salty and streamline, this dry rosé is for adventurous sippers, and best when it warms up in the glass.

Alas, the sunshine did not last.

But then again, neither did this delightful wine.
