Lucy’s Block Rosé

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

Our 2018 vintage is now sold out at the wine shop. Next release: spring 2020.

Tasting & Pairing

A beautiful salmon in colour, this rosé is elegant and full of surprises. Notes of watermelon, cranberry, red summer berries and rose petals on the nose. The palate is juicy and refreshing with cranberry, savoury herbs and red summer berry flavours on the lingering finish. A versatile food wine – try it alongside fresh BC crab salad, prosciutto and melon or marinated chicken with Herbs de Provence.

Winemaking

This year’s blend is 60% Pinot Meunier and 40% Pinot Noir sourced entirely from young vines planted in 2014. The grapes were destemmed and crushed together, then cold soaked for 4 hours one tank, allowing the clear juice to draw flavour and colour from the grape skins before pressing. After racking, the juice is fermented cold to enhance its fruity varietal characteristics.
