Winemaking

The grapes for our Pinot Noir come from several vineyards in the southern Okanagan. The Pinot Noir grapes were cold soaked for 3 days and fermented on the skins for 7 days.

Aging

The wine then spent 9 months aging in 1 year old French oak barrels.

Nose

A bouquet of cherry, wild strawberry, red licorice, delicate spice and a whiff of smoke.

Palate

This gentle, loving Rooster has a light to medium frame with pure fruit flavours of red berry, red currant, cherry and crab apple. The food-friendly acidity brings excitement and the soft tannins assist in building structure. Fresh juicy red berries linger on the finish. Enjoy while young and vibrant

Appearance

Bright ruby red colour.

Food Pairing

Pair with rigatoni and spicy sausage tomato sauce; mushroom lasagna; Portobello mushroom on tomato basil fettuccine; veal cutlets; duck breast salad; gourmet vegetarian pizzas with tomato, mushroom and roasted red pepper; La Sauvagine cheese with water crackers; cedar plank salmon.
