2010 Vaïla Rosé
Made through the old Burgundian method of Saignée (literally to bleed) this rosé is produced from free run juice of Pinot Noir Grape and entirely steel tank aged. It is a fun, yet delicate wine absolutely perfect for the summer. The 2010 Vaïla starts with a pale salmon colour and the flavour profile leans towards rhubarb, pink grapefruit and the amazing bright red fruit BC rosés are becoming known for.
Charcuterie and artisanal cheese plates make for a classic pairing.

“Pinot Noir for this wine was harvested on November 4 (2010 was also a late vintage) and juice for this rosé was drawn off after 24 hours on the skins. The wine, with a 340-case production, begins with an attractive salmon pink hue. It has aromas and flavours of strawberry, rhubarb and pink grapefruit and has a refreshing tang on the dry finish.”
