Few Canadian wineries take rosé as seriously as @malivoire. It was part of the opening inventory and has been subject to ongoing research and development to a point where @malivoire pink portfolio stands amongst the very best wines in the country.

Winemakers Notes

So many treats to unpack!  Multi-layers of fruit greet the nose: strawberry, cherry, plumb, peach, lime cordial, with underlying watermelon, white chocolate and elderflower.

The palate is delicate while brightly focused.  Expressions of red berries, stone fruits, citrus and melon share the glass with white raspberry and blueberry.
Grapefruit, rhubarb and rosemary linger in a creamy, fresh finish.

Hand-picked on the cool mornings of September 20th – 21st from the original Moira Vineyard. Grape sugars averaged 20.6° Brix.

Vinification: Whole grape clusters were gently pressed for minimal contact between juice and skins. After briefly chilling in a low-profile stainless-steel tank (resembling a dairy tank) for optimum lees contact, the juice transferred to a standard steel tank for cool fermentation. The finished wine was bottled in January 2021.

DRY:  0 g sugar

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12.5%; residual sugar: 0 grams per litre; 5.9 titratable acidity:  3.33 grams per litre pH:
