Rosé, Clos du Soleil, Similkameen Valley VQA, Okanagan, BC, 2012, 12.5% abv.

Another purchase from a recent trip to the Similkameen and given my extreme jet lag on this hot summer day, I’ve decided it’s a great way to recover from cross-Atlantic flights.

Clear and bright, medium salmon with even and light legs, on the nose this wine is clean and youthful with aromas of field berry, soft jalapeño, ripe strawberry and the lightest brush of green bough.

On the nose, it’s dry, has medium plus acidity, a tiny scrape of soft tannin, medium alcohol, with medium intensity flavour characteristics of more field berry, strawberry, raspberry and piquant red pepper.

Crisp, juicy, lovely depth for a rosé, flavourful and refreshing, this is solid WSET Good.

Versatile with a picnic of cheeses, crackers, fresh fruit, nuts and meats, it’s made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon – and worth another trip to the valley to this outstanding artisanal winery.
