Growing Conditions

Sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest.

Winemaking

The 2015 Tawse Rose is an approachable blend of Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pinot Noir. To impart structure and colour, it was made using the “saignée” method though which we combine the free-run juice of red grapes before they are pressed. Our driest Rose yet, this wine is very fruit forward with sour cherry and fresh strawberries prominent on the nose and subtle spice notes. A treat on the palate with prominent fresh red fruits and well balanced acidity.

Food Pairing

Rose is always the easiest and most versatile wine to pair with food and the 2015 Tawse Rose is no different. While it is the perfect companion to grilled vegetables, Thai chicken lettuce wraps or fresh spring rolls, Rose is also ideal on the patio with friends.
