Lucy’s Block Rosé

Named after our Grandmother, Lucy Mary Whitworth, this refined, light-bodied dry Rosé is a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes from our Westpoint Vineyard in East Kelowna.

Tasting & Pairing

First a delicate, light pink feast for the eyes and then aromas of watermelon, blood orange, wild strawberry, rose petal, hibiscus and cranberry. On the palate the wine is dry and well balanced with bright juicy acidity, good structure and a long, elegant cranberry finish.

This is such a versatile wine food-wise and is well suited to any al-fresco dining experience. We reccommend pairing alongside fresh BC seafood, proscuitto and melon, marinated chicken kabobs or salad Niçoise. Or perhaps try a Pissaladiére, the “pizza” of the south of France, or crostini with green or black tapenade, a delicious spread of olives, anchovies and capers.

Winemaking

This Rosé is crafted with a focus on elegance. Single-vineyard grapes were destemmed, crushed and held in press for just two hours to develop a lovely pink tinge before being drained off. The juice was then fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks to preserve the pure fruit character and aromatic qualities. To add extra complexity and texture the juice was kept in contact with the lees for three months before bottling.

Ready to enjoy now.
