2011 Vaïla Rosé

Winemaker's Notes

Made with the Burgundian method of Saigne (literally to bleed) this rose is produced from free run juice from Pinot Noir grapes and entirely steel tank aged. It is a fun, delicate wine absolutely perfect for the summer. The 2011 Vaïla presents a pale salmon colour and explosive aromas of rhubarb, pink grapefruit and the amazing bright red fruit BC ross are famous for.

5/5 Stars

This delicious Pinot Noir rose … is made in the Saignee (bleeding the juice) method to extract its pale pink colour. It presents a mix of sweet summer fruits – red cherries, peach, raspberries and strawberries, which are layered with orange peel, violets, spicebox and cedary notes. The palate follows this trend with juicy berries and exotic citrus with a core of earthy/forest floor flavours. It has a solid foundation, good focus and a long juicy finish trailing fine spice flavours.

90 Points

This dry Pinot Noir rosé has developed such a cult following that one fan has already ordered nine cases for hopefully a great summer. It begins with a lovely rose petal and salmon hue; it has aromas of rhubarb, grapefruit and strawberry and flavours of strawberry.
