Rosé, Cabernet Franc, Lock & Worth Winery, Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, BC, 2019, 12.7% abv. C$22

There’s no doubt about it – spring has sprung.

While it’s still a challenge to socially distance wine with friends on the porch, here is a bottle that should be on everyone’s patio menu when life opens up post-Covid.

From Matthew Sherlock and Ross Hackworth’s Naramata Bench Cabernet Franc vineyard, this Rosé wine spent 3 hours on the skins to get that beautiful pink salmon hue after the grapes were pressed in whole clusters, and 6 months in neutral French oak before bottling.  

And she is so pretty as a result!  That delicate shade of salmon is augmented by soft aromas of watermelon rind, and rhubarb, while the ever-so-slightly off dry palate is bright and bold with tangerine peel, strawberry, red plum, and newly mowed meadow.

Unfiltered and unfined, as all the Lock & Worth wines are, this is a no-brainer for any spring and summer distanced drinking you plan on doing.
