This Rose is great on its own or can be paired with cheese, charcuterie or some BC smoked salmon.
A super ripe vineyard block of Merlot was crushed directly to the press, given 4 hrs skin contact, then pressed and blended with small portions of juice drained (saign̩e) during cold soak from blocks of Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Fermented cool in stainless steel leaving a small amount of residual sugar remaining, for an off-dry finish.
Hillside Estate aim to grow the best quality fruit possible, pick at optimum physiological ripeness, ferment cool, and intervene with nature only when necessary��_simple, elegant. The temptation to constantly ���fiddle� and ���improve upon� Mother Nature is really more about manufacturing. Natural, beautiful wine is not manufactured���rather, it is carefully guided through natural phases to become the glorious essence of the effects of sun and soil on specific grape varieties.
